JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — At least three public school districts are having computer issues while trying to take statewide standardized tests on the First Coast Monday morning, FCN’s Keitha Nelson reports.
The confirmed reports of problems come from Duval, St. Johns, and Clay counties.
These students are trying to take the Florida Standards Assessments writing tests. Some can’t log onto the system while others are experiencing computer crashes and slow response times. Reports regarding the ailing computer systems are coming in from all around the state.
Students in grades 8 – 11 are affected, as they are required to use a computer for their test. Grades 4 – 7 still use a paper and pencil to take the test and are thus unaffected.
