OKLAHOMA CITY —
For the second consecutive year, standardized testing for Oklahoma students has been disrupted, prompting the state superintendent to suspend all online testing for the day.
Superintendent Janet Barresi directed testing vendor CTB/McGraw Hill to suspend its testing Monday after disruptions for students taking high school end-of-instruction exams and tests in grades six through eight.
A similar glitch stalled testing last year in Oklahoma and elsewhere.
A spokesman for CTB/McGraw Hill said the company planned to issue a statement about the testing situation. A press conference with Barresi and officials from the testing vendor was planned for Monday afternoon.
Districts have been told to allow students who successfully accessed the tests to complete them, but to suspend online testing for those students who hadn’t started.
