Student, 10, Orders Secret State Tests To 'Play School'

It didn’t happen in Kentucky, but a 10-year old student was able to order extra copies of the secret Pennsylvania public school assessments to be sent to his local school district.

The tests were shipped even though the boy listed his home address in the request he faxed to the testing company that produces the test books for the Keystone State.

Oh, well, at least it didn’t happen here, right?

Well, the testing company that fouled up in Pennsylvania used to have the contract to support testing here, too, in the early days of CATS.

I wonder if test booklet security was as bad back then for Kentucky as it apparently is in Pennsylvania today.
