ETS Provides Wrong Answer Sheet
Linda learned that another teacher at her school had the same problem at another test site. And so they called ETS. An ETS representative said that someone from ETS would be in touch. Linda and her colleague received identical form letters from two different people.
In a response dated October 11, 2005, ETS treated Linda’s complaint as a trivial matter, in her words, “like the lighting or the temperature conditions.” ETS offers to waive PART of the fee for a re-test. She will be obliged to “submit the registration fee, state fee (if applicable), and any other required fees."
If Linda takes this retest on the date chosen by ETS, they will waive their test fee. They want her to take it on November 19, 2005, the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Linda wonders how many other ETS test takers faced this problem.
NOTE: The Praxis Chemistry, Physics, and General Science test(10070) contains 120 Multiple-choice questions. Here is the approximate breakdown:
I. Major Ideas of Chemistry and Physics 24 20%
II. Chemistry 36 questions 30%
III. Physics 36 questions 30%
IV. Earth and Space Science 12 questions 10%
V. Life Science 12 questions 10%
Here's a sample question, which gives you an idea of the complexity of not having a matching answer sheet.
1. Zn3(PO4)2(s) + 6H+(aq) « 3Zn2+(aq) + 2H3PO4(aq)
The expression representing the equilibrium constant,
Kc, for the equation above is
