Problems reported in online TNReady tests

Towns Edwards was hired by Superintendent Bryan Johnson after spending a number of years overseeing testing at the statelevel.

According to Tennessee Department of Education spokeswoman Sara Gast, no server had crashed Monday and the issue was not related to the volume of students taking the test.

Testing has historically been a problem for the state.

Most Sonoma Valley school district campuses are beginning state standardized testing this week or next.

Many parents questioned how the issue was not "statewide" after issues were reported from districts in Cumberland, Cannon, Rutherford, Knox, Washington, Grundy and several other counties. Last year, state officials announced almost 10,000 assessment tests were incorrectly scored by Questar. After the failure, Education Commissioner Candice McQueen directed districts to stop testing.

At numerous nine Hamilton County schools today, students were sent back to class while awaiting a resolution.

Wilson County Schools suspended its online testing in sixth through 12 grades due to issues with the Nextera platform.

As part of that implementation, students in eighth grade this year will try out a new test called the California Science Test, or CAST. Questar has fixed this issue, and thousands of students are on the platform now. Over 25,000 students have successfully completed TN Ready tests as of this point [Monday].

McQueen says, the assessment is working and testing has resumed.

This a developing story.
