NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Graduation day has arrived for some New York City high school seniors, but some students may not get their diplomas on time because of an issue with the new Regents exam grading system.
The city awarded McGraw-Hill a $10 million contract to collect, scan and send the Regents exams to graders electronically. But the system has been exceedingly slow, some teachers said.
“Every day that we’ve come in, there’s been some kind of slowdown with the system,” a Brooklyn teacher told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond. “We did a maximum of two hours of scoring and after that, there just wasn’t any more available.”
