David Glovin and David Evans report on "Tests that Fail" for the December issue of Bloomberg Markets. Their story exposes egregious faults in the $2.8 billion academic assesment industry. Regularly, the largest testing companies make errors in grading and scoring exams - from mistakenly failing over 4,000 aspiring teachers on the national Praxis exam to sending out over 5000 incorrect SAT scores.
