SAT Scoring Snafus

University Testing

Education Testing Service (ETS) has sent letters to roughly 1,500 high school students admitting that their SAT scores on the MAY exam were 50-100 points higher than originally reported. The optical scanner that scores the tests ignored the answers of ten "open ended" math questions. The omissions were caught by a student who requested a summary of his answers. Not so fortunate were the 650 California high-school students who have to re-take the SAT because Federal Express lost their exams.
