Oologah students have been unable to complete state mandated online testing after the testing company’s servers crashed for the second day in a row Tuesday.
The problem with the testing company, CTB/McGraw-Hill’s servers has apparently affected school districts statewide.
Oologah Superintendent Rob Armstrong said testing was halted Monday because of problems with the server. He said the company said the system would be fixed by Tuesday morning. It wasn’t.
“We were told it would be working and it’s not working,” Armstrong said. “It makes you question the reliability and validity of these exams. We need to know it’s reliable. The kids shouldn’t be punished for the failure of the company to make sure the system is ready.”
