OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma’s Superintendent of Schools is suggesting the State Board of Education not renew the contract of testing vendor CTB/McGraw-Hill for the next fiscal year.
The children started the end of year standardized testing Monday and more than 8,000 computers went out in the middle of it all.
“I would preferred if they got the problem fixed before they had us take the test because it was so distracting,” Kayleigh Vaughan said.
Vaughan said she and her classmates were concentrating on the algebra test when computers started shutting down.
“I mean all the teachers were running around trying to fix it,” Vaughan said.
Despite the glitches, she managed to make it through the test because she said school leaders warned problems were a possibility.
“They explained it to us in the beginning. They told us they’d been having problems and what to do if it happened,” said Vaughan.
