Read the story from the Hartford Courant and find out how your district scored here.
It’s interesting to read Jonathan Pelto’s blog today – http://jonathanpelto.com/2013/08/14/education-commissioner-pryor-hires-accounting-firm-to-validate-accuracy-of-standardized-test-scores/ – and discover that the SDE decided that they had to hire the accounting of Blum Shapiro to “validate” Connecticut’s test scores. Hmmm – to “validate” Connecticut’s test scores considering, as Pelto points out, “Connecticut spends at least $25 million on the Connecticut Mastery Test, the vendor responsible for creating and scoring the test has not changed and this is the “4th generation” of the test and has been used before by the state.
