States Take on Common Core Test Makers as Schools Stop Exams
States are positioning themselves to hold the test makers accountable over the botched Common Core assessments.
Nevada, Montana and North Dakota officials say they are discussing legal options with their state attorneys general.
Nevada has also filed breach of contract notices and is unlikely to meet a federal testing mandate after its largest school district said it won't attempt to test anymore without a problem-free guarantee.
Montana says it may require the test makers to reimburse the state for any future federal funding lost.
Testing in the states was halted last week after a widespread system crash caused by capacity issues with New Hampshire-based Measured Progress.
The company is contracted to administer the tests linked to hotly disputed, federally backed education standards. It has apologized for the technical problems. (AP)
