LEAP Test Scores Canceled: Tests Given Early

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A private school in Shreveport is ordered
to cancel scores for some eighth-grade students who were given
Louisiana's high-stakes tests a week before the state's official
testing date.
The Times reports that Evangel Christian Academy must also pay
$350 per student to cover the costs of creating a new Louisiana
Educational Assessment Program test, scoring and mailing the
materials.
Albert Dean, principal of Evangel's middle and high schools,
says it was an administrative error, and will never be repeated.
The state Department of Education contacted the school after
receiving an anonymous tip. Spokesman Rene Greer says the school
cooperated fully.
Dean would not say why the test was given early or what
corrective action will be taken.
