Illinois May Scrap Test Contract

The Illinois board of education, at the recommendation of state schools Superintendent Randy J.

Mr. Dunn has charged that the Orlando, Fla.-based Harcourt Assessment Inc. has not shipped tests and answer documents to districts in a timely manner and has misprinted materials. Harcourt officials said last week that many problems had already been corrected, and that they planned to provide the board with evidence showing the company is fulfilling its contractual obligations.
