Pearson apologizes for any inconvenience caused to users and readers of blogs hosted by Edublogs this week.
As a learning and information company, Pearson values the open and free exchange of ideas.
However we needed to address one post and one sensitive issue: the publication online of one of Pearson’s clinical tests. This particular test is used by clinical psychologists to assess people who may be at risk of suicide. Publication and any subsequent misuse of the test questions can compromise the integrity of the test results, and in turn the recommendations made by the qualified professionals.
It is a matter of deep regret that, in responding to our request to address this single item, a server hosting company took much broader action.
