FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky education officials have suspended online testing through at least Thursday after glitches with the testing system used to administer end-of-course assessments.
Kentucky students are among thousands in four states -- including Indiana, Minnesota and Oklahoma -- that have been kicked offline while taking tests in recent weeks.
Kentucky Education Department spokeswoman Nancy Rodriguez says its vendor, ACT Inc., reported online issues in Kentucky and Alabama.
The department says about 25 districts reported slow and dropped connections from the ACT Vantage testing system used to administer the assessments for students taking English II, Algebra II, biology and U.S. history.
About 60 percent of Kentucky districts administer the tests online.
