From the AP today, school officials in Mobile County are throwing out grades after a standardized test appeared on the school system's Web site before students took the test.

Board members learned about the snafu at a recent meeting, when administrators told them that part of the language arts section of what's called Criterion Reference Test for this quarter were accidentally posted on the site. Superintendent Harold Dodge told the AP the tests will still be given this quarter, but the results will only be used so teachers can see how their students achieve.

Some of our local school systems use a program called STI Home so parents can check on their child's progress online, but none offers homework assignments or other similar documents on their Web sites.
