According to the Texas Tribune, Community Impact Newspaper‘s reporting partner, Texas Education Agency spokesperson DeEtta Culbertson said more than 100,000 students were taking the test when the problem was noted, but because the disruption was scattered across the state, it is difficult to determine how many students were affected.
TEA reported the technical issue resulted in students being logged out of the testing system without the ability to log back in.
According to FISD, it is believed that all students who were testing were able to complete and submit their exams.
According to the Texas Tribune report, in 2016, the results of tests taken by fifth- and eighth-graders were scrapped by Education Commissioner Mike Morath after 14,000 tests were disrupted.
STAAR testing will continue throughout this week.
