Scoring the new Common Core-based tests is taking longer than anticipated in Washington state, and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction doesn’t know why.

Scoring student responses on new statewide reading and math exams is taking longer than expected in Washington state, and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction doesn’t know why.

Unforeseen issues with the state’s brand new testing system have delayed scoring on some of the new, Common Core-based tests by several weeks, meaning schools won’t have all their students’ individual scores within three weeks after a student finishes testing, like OSPI promised.

“OSPI doesn’t have details about why scoring and score reporting are taking longer than we thought they would,” OSPI spokeswoman Kristen Jaudon said in a prepared statement. “We regret that scores have not been reported as quickly as we had hoped and had communicated.”
