PERRY, Ga. (AP) - The Houston County superintendent says the scores on the state-mandated Student Learning Objectives test won’t count toward their final grade.

The Macon Telegraph (https://bit.ly/1AhKBAi ) reported Monday that Superintendent Mike Scott says the test will be reworked and the district may have been a little overzealous in the rigor.

The test was to count as 20 percent of the final grade for students. Scott says a preliminary review of the test data showed some inconsistencies. The main frustration of the parents was that students had not been taught the material and many grades dropped.

Parents and students led an online petition to omit the scores. The petition included more than 2,000 signatures in less than a week.
