153 tests from Anaheim school lost in transit

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Students at an Anaheim high school have been informed that 153 advanced-placement tests were lost while being delivered to the organization that administers the exams.

Officials with Educational Testing Service and Esperanza High both say answer sheets were shipped from the school, but didn't arrive at the testing service facility in New Jersey.

Principal Ken Fox tells the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/1zcAKY1 ) that Esperanza shipped about 10 boxes to ETS, which should have contained the test booklets, the multiple-choice answer sheets and the essays.

There is no record of the boxes arriving.

ETS says students can retake the test, get a full refund or, for certain exams, receive a national-average score that would merit university credit at some campuses.
