PHOENIX (AP) — A former Arizona Supreme Court chief justice says she did not find evidence of a quid pro quo arrangement between Arizona State University and an education and technology company.
Former Chief Justice Ruth McGregor wrote in a report released Tuesday that evidence did not back a claim that the university had agreed to use products from Cengage in exchange for a grant.
Former professor Brian Goegan claimed in mid-April that the economics department had required students to pay to use the online learning platform MindTap so the university could receive a large sum.
The professor also claimed that he was directed to fail 30 percent of his students in certain classes to make an adaptive learning project look better. McGregor wrote that no evidence supported that claim.
