The Department of Education has canceled a contract with one publishing company and has gotten refund from another.

Problems with both companies caused major disruptions to students' test scores earlier this year.

The DOE will cancel its contract with CTB/McGraw Hill, the company that botched the scoring of the Regents exams, delaying the graduation date of some high school seniors.

A spokesman says the department is still working with the company on a refund.

Meanwhile, Pearson says that it will refund the city $2.1 million for their 2012-2013 contract.

The Department of Education says it's too late to get a new company for its gifted and talented exam dates.

The contract will be up for bid when it expires next year.

Thousands of students who took the gifted and talented test earlier this year were incorrectly told they had failed to qualify for special programs.
