Test hiccups

Schools are out for the summer, but administrators are digging deeply into glitches that plagued students taking standardized tests on computers this spring.

Many districts which moved to tests based on Common Core also switched from students using pen and pencils to an online format.
That was a nice idea…

Old computers, lack of bandwidth, server capacity and other problems triggered major issues for some students. As a result, officials in some districts are spending another summer hunched over computers. The problems need to be fixed, because the shift to online assessment is inevitable.
