State Tests Off To Good Start

KSAL StaffApril 13, 2015

Student testing in Kansas is going much smoother than last year.

Principals and district-level test coordinators in several school districts say issues with Kansas’ computerized tests have been “isolated.” They say state test developers have promptly addressed problems.

Technical troubles and cyberattacks caused widespread concerns last year as Kansas rolled out a new test design and delivery platform.

Marianne Perie is the director of the center that develops and administers Kansas’ state tests. She said Friday that students have completed about 70 percent of this year’s tests since the assessment window opened last month. It continues until mid-May.

Topeka school system assessment director Brady Dean says there’ve been glitches with only a few of the 10,500 tests that district students been started or completed.
