SAT Executives Summoned for Errors
#1
Education Secretary Margaret Spellings summoned executives from testing companies and the College Board to a meeting Tuesday that focused on industry practices in the wake of a high-profile scoring error on the SAT college entrance exam.

Deputy Education Secretary Ray Simon said Spellings called the hour-long meeting in Washington to discuss the SAT error and try to evaluate whether the testing industry can accurately handle the growing number of high-stakes, state-level tests under the No Child Left Behind law.

"From the very beginning we had concerns about the capacity ... of the companies to handle NCLB testing," Simon said in a telephone briefing for reporters. "These things were brought to a head with some of the recent scoring errors that have been reported. Obviously we're concerned about that. Is that going to be a trend? Is it an aberration?"
