Nevada to Recoup $1.8M From Common-Core Group Over Testing Mishaps

Jul 16, 2016 by

Nevada officials announced Tuesday that a common-core assessment consortium will credit the state $1.8 million as compensation for problems that derailed a spate of its assessments last year.

The state’s attorney general, Adam Paul Laxalt, said the accord is part of a pre-litigation settlement with the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, which Nevada joined in 2010 to work together on developing tests.

The state’s department of education–which said last year’s problems have been fixed–also had relied on the testing vendor Measured Progress to deliver the exams, known as criterion referenced tests.
