In a developing story, at least eleven school systems across Tennessee are reporting problems with TNReady testing today. The problems include difficulty logging on and errors when attempting to submit completed tests.
While individual schools in some of these districts have been able to complete tests, most of the districts report widespread problems. The problems include several large districts, including Knox County, Davidson County, Rutherford County, and Sumner County.
The testing day was reportedly relatively smooth yesterday, when a number of large systems did not take the test.
More as this continuing saga unfolds.
UPDATE: 12:41 PM
Tennessee House of Representatives votes to delay budget vote until there is action on TNReady. Some are calling for the suspension of the test this year.
UPDATE: 1:03 PM State says issue is “resolved”
The state of Tennessee plans to push ahead with testing, despite significant problems for students on three of the four days of statewide administration. The state says the current issue is “resolved” and that things are back to normal.
Here’s what “normal” looks like when you have these kind of delays.
