Pa. school grading data to be released after delay

October 4, 2013

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania education officials are preparing the release of performance scores for all 3,200 traditional, charter, cyber and technical schools following complaints about technical errors that delayed it by four days.

Department of Education spokesman Tim Eller said the performance scores are to be released mid-day Friday. School officials complained two weeks ago that technical errors had resulted in many students' tests not being included in the scoring and, as a result, some performance scores are likely to be incomplete.

Schools were able to ask the department to suppress questionable data until corrections are made. Until then, the department says it will compute a rating using available data and issue a revised rating later.

The problem involves the Keystone tests, which were given for the first time statewide in 2012-13.
