Thousands of students couldn’t take FCAT online on Tuesday, as problems with the testing company’s website prevented students from logging in.
The glitch with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test affected districts around Florida, including Orange and Seminole county schools.
In Seminole, sixth graders taking FCAT math and seventh and ninth graders taking FCAT reading were also unable to do the exams online, said spokesman Mike Lawrence. Many FCAT exams are given with paper and pencil, and those continued, Lawrence added.
Volusia County schools reported only minor issues, affecting just a handful of students at one school. Osceola County schools were able to test their students as planned.Lake County officials couldn’t be reached.
