Measured Progress said they would refund Nevada almost $1.3 million in a settlement reached with the state the Nevada Attorney General’s office announced.
Nevada announced that it was dumping Measured Progress because of the bang-up job it did implementing Smarter Balanced in the state.
A blame game is being played after Nevada experienced a colossal failure with their delivery of the Smarter Balanced Assessment statewide.
Six states have experienced technical glitches with the roll out for Smarter Balanced Assessments this Spring causing Montana to make it optional.
The Common Core Assessment Consortia count: Smarter Balanced – 22 members, PARCC – 14 members, with 17 states not belonging to either consortia.
