Pearson Loses Texas Contract for Standardized Exams
Pearson, the only company to have handled Texas' public school standardized tests, probably won't be running the next four years of STAAR. The Texas Education Agency decided to offer most of a new testing contract to rival ETS.
Whether students, teachers or school officials will notice the change is a question state officials declined to answer Monday.
If the contract is signed, Education Testing Service will coordinate the testing program and develop, administer, score and report results of the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness
