Sarah Maslin Nir of The New York Times reports that 7,000 students received incorrect grades from the Educational Records Bureau (ERB) on their Lower Level or Upper Level ISEE exam.  7,000 Private School Applicants Got Incorrect Scores, Company Says

Funny that caught in this embarrassing situation, the ERB played down the importance of the ISEE:

Parents of the students affected received notification of the error and the revised scores for the Independent School Entrance Exam in letters sent by same-day service from the Educational Records Bureau, known as the E.R.B., which administers the exam. In the letters, officials from the E.R.B. played down the importance of the test scores, saying they were just one of many components of applications that might include grade point average, essays and teacher recommendations.

I’m happy to say that none of my 2010-2011 NYC private middle school and high school applicant clients called me to complain–because they have already been admitted to their desired private school choices.  The rest of their applicant packages–including application essays, parent and student interviews, and extracurriculars–were strong thanks to our work together.

  1. Glad to see that your students got in.

    Funny, if the test is so un important why do they give it, and why do they give ERB President Dr. David Clune close to $400,000 per year in total compensation (salary and deferred compensation) to run a testing company which makes these errors.
