There seems to be an EDA company named McGraw-Hill. I believe they make good money on this. Worth investigating a bit. Biblbroks 01:38, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

Got rid of acquisitions section, and re-entered the info in the beginning paragraph. Someone can change the wording if they like, but I don't think two sentences warrants the need for a new section.
- Bardiak - I understand why, in its previous state, you removed the Acquisitions section but McGraw-Hill has during its history made many significant acquisitions in addition to the two that were listed. A couple of prime examples are mentioned in the same paragraph; Standard & Poor's (1966) and J.D. Power & Associates (2005). As the sentence you had added was factually incorrect I have removed it, re-added the Acquisition section and expanded accordingly. Richc80 15:26, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
McGraw-Hill has a vandal in their IP blocks who is constantly making bad edits in the Wikipedia. I wonder if this is an official act or a rogue flunky doing the dirty work. Sukiari 02:20, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
McGraw Hill CTP
Back in the '80s some places in the California penal system used an IQ/assessment test supplied by McGraw Hill for their new convicts. It was called the McGraw Hill CTP, CTP standing for "California Teacher's Program," as I understand it. It was in three parts, reading/writing, then a squiggle test (gears and whatever the dots and lines were), then math at the end. I guess it was to gauge just how criminally sophisticated the new arrivals were.
It was discontinued for some reason. There was a flaw in the deductive reasoning section or something. Technically, the gear/squiggle tests were sufficient for assessing deductive reasoning, as many convicts didn't make it to algebra when they were in school. The prison system brought a new school rationale into use, having teachers visit each cell individually for a while. There was a teacher at Donovan State Prison in San Diego who refused to give a test to one of the prisoners, caused the prisoner much turmoil and affected his sentence (he was there for something he didn't do, he was factually innocent). Some kind of friction arose out of it, anyway. Caused some changes. blah blah blah Apparently McGraw Hill's test really flopped somehow. Yeah cuz it was so hard and no one could answer the questions.No telling how this affected those prisoners who had to take it. They're probably still there.
- If the test was bad, does that mean that all the prisoners who had to take it should get new trials because of what happened to them in prison afterwards? Or, maybe the convict that you're talking about (the one who got a real good score, and who the Donovan teacher wouldn't let in class) should have his convictions overturned? That would be a good starting place. I agree, McGraw Hill was wrong to do this.--184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:24, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I'm not a regular Wikipedian and wouldn't want to take it upon myself to change the title of an article, but I'm pretty sure the hyphen in McGraw-Hill as it stands ought to be an en dash, because the name is from not one, but two people.

Stock price note
I just noticed that per here the Stock price for McGrawHill is down almost 7% so far today with the S&P (which is owned by McGrawHill) downgraded the US, FanniMae and FreddieMac. Not sure that it should go in the article yet but it might be worth mentioning the end of day numbers. --Kumioko (talk) 18:24, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
