TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas student testing is moving forward despite several hurdles, from computer problems to cyberattacks.

After the tests in mathematics, science and reading started March 10, system glitches prevented many schools from completing the federally mandated tests. Once those issues were fixed, the tests were hit by cyberattacks that flooded the testing system with unwanted traffic and block legitimate traffic.

By Thursday, the tests were moving ahead.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported officials say schools completed 77,500 annual state assessment tests on Thursday and Friday, which is more than the first three weeks of the testing season combined.

Marianne Perie, director of the Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation, says 25 percent of tests are complete and many more are partly complete.
