North country students appeared to be able to take the state English test a day after a computer glitch sent several school districts across the state scrambling. The Watertown Daily Times reports that school superintendents say that they are optimistic that whatever the issue was, it was fixed.
Most of the approximately 500 sixth- and seventh-grade students set to take the test were unable to do so on Wednesday, which was the first of two days of testing. In a few weeks, the district’s students will complete computerized math tests. Emily DeSantis, State Education Department spokesperson, said in an email to the Times that Questar Assessment Inc., the state’s assessment vendor, experienced delays in the delivery of the tests Wednesday. The school’s testing is set to run through today and Tuesday.
