Another day of TNReady testing, another set of issues.
Reports are coming in from systems across the state that students are having login and submission problems.
Reports are in from Hardin, Chester, Knox, Shelby, Sumner, Wilson, Washington, Montgomery, Roane, Rutherford so far.
Some reports suggest that a cut fiber line between Georgia and Tennessee is to blame.
Stay tuned …
UPDATE: 5:20 PM
The Tennessee Department of Education is blaming a dump truck for cutting a fiber optic line that provided internet connectivity.
Here’s what Joey Hassell, Director of Schools in Haywood County had to say about that on Twitter:
I don’t understand.
@HaywoodSchools NEVER lost internet connectivity. Our schools could access the internet & phone service w/ @ENAconnects worked fine. It was business as usual except for @QuestarAI in our schools! So…the dump truck just messed up @TNedu testing?!?
