Pearson Statement on Mississippi Contract

June 16, 2017

8:00 PM EST

Pearson discovered an issue with the assignment of scale scores and performance levels for the May administration of the Mississippi 2017 U.S. History assessment for early reporting.

Pearson apologizes for the concern caused by this issue and is working with the Mississippi Department of Education to correct the scores and resolve this situation as soon as possible.

We are disappointed by today’s board decision but stand ready to assist the state in any way possible.
