The palm reader malfunctioned and could not read my palm accurately. It took extra time checking out, and then an extremely long time time after taking my break. By the time I got back to my chair the math section time had already started and I had lost 3 minutes. The end result was that I had a extremely poor math score. Is there anything I can do about this?

That is terrible. I would definitely go through the appeal process.

I got a response from Pearson VUE / GMAC today.

They said that they confirmed that I had missed time due to the technology error, but they will not cancel the scores and will not give me a refund (they will give me \$50 though).

What are my next steps? This is horrible!

You should being it up to the GMAC rep here on the site (since GMAC supervises Pearson who does the job on GMAC's behalf).
This is not right and GMAC can overrule them if they choose to. The issue is for them to choose to do it, and yes, I would too would want to know what happens in issues when technology fails.

I think at minimum you should get a free test.
