Computer glitch delays district FCAT testing

Published: Thursday, May 1, 2014 at 10:45 AM.

Students who were to take Session 1 of the reading FCAT on Tuesday and the second session the following day instead took Session 1 on Wednesday and completed the second session on Thursday.

Friday is reserved each week for makeups, providing a built-in day for flexibility of scheduling in the event of problems.

“You just have to shift,” Ramsey said. “The state is more flexible and we were flexible.”

And while some students were flustered by preparing for testing and then having to take pause, Ramsey said the stress were likely higher for those not actually taking any tests.

“I would say it was probably a more stressful day for the adults than it was for the students,” Ramsey said.

Testing was back on schedule by the end of the week.
