Well folks, if you haven’t heard there’s yet another blunder with the gifted and talented test results this year. It seems that Pearson, the test publisher for both the NNAT test and the OLSAT test, made another huge mistake on almost 200 test scores for our talented tots in New York City. According to the DNA Info article,  the Dept. of Ed. is playing the blame game against Pearson for their inadequacies in scoring the test. It’s interesting how the DOE leaves out the fact they lost over 400 tests just few weeks ago but I guess it’s easier to deflect blame to Pearson since they are the ones making millions of dollars on the administration of these tests to our kids here in New York.

So, now we have even kids qualifying for a seat into the G&T program and the department of ed has extended the deadline for school applications to Tuesday, May 15.  I suppose it can’t get any worse than this but then again, I said that couple of weeks ago and look what happened.

Stay tuned for even more drama and make sure you sign-up for free practice questions on Testing Mom web site.
