July 1, 2015
Dear CTB/McGraw-Hill Customer:
I’m writing to inform you that McGraw-Hill Education has reached an agreement to sell assets of CTB/McGraw-Hill to Data Recognition Corporation (DRC), an industry-leading assessment company based in Minnesota. I’m excited by the prospect of bringing together two exceptional testing companies in CTB and DRC, and what that means in terms of providing exceptional assessment solutions and services for schools, teachers and students.
DRC will be a great home for CTB and a wonderful company to support you and your assessment programs. The two companies have worked together in the past on state programs, and DRC has become a very close partner to us over the last few years. We are very impressed with DRC’s capabilities, including their online testing platform and their track record of excellent customer service. The agreement to sell CTB to DRC includes products such as TerraNova®, LAS Links®, TABE®, and the Test Assessing Secondary Completion™ (TASC) in addition to our custom summative assessments. With the combined strengths of CTB and DRC, you will receive an even better level of service.
I want to assure you that I will personally work to make sure that the transition process is both smooth and transparent. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our staff at 1.800.538.9547 and look for additional information on CTB.com.
Thank you for your loyalty to CTB; we have truly valued our relationships with our customers and know that your future relationship with DRC will be very strong.
