TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - State Education Commissioner Eric Smith says he'll impose "significant financial penalties" on a new contractor who has been late in grading the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
Smith on Tuesday said he was "outraged and frustrated" over the delays by NCS Pearson. He also apologized to parents, teachers and administrators for being unable to release the FCAT scores on time.
Third grade reading scores have been announced, but the results for other grades and subjects are not expected until the end of the month - more than six weeks late.
