First day of STAAR testing canceled for thousands of students experiencing technical issues across Texas

Texas officials mandated that students take the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness in person this year at monitored test sites, although millions of students are still learning remotely because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Students in Austin ISD waited for almost two hours in person to take the test. While the test is required this year, there is no penalty for elementary and middle school students who don’t show up or who fail the STAAR test this year. Texas officials have said the test would not affect students’ ability to move up to the next grade.

But high school students must pass five subject-specific courses by the time they graduate, a requirement that will not be waived this year. Online STAAR testing has faced technical issues before. In 2018, software kicked thousands of students out of the test while it was still going and didn’t let them log back on. In 2016, computer problems statewide affected more than 14,000 tests. STAAR Testing Canceled Tuesday After Widespread Glitches Reported

The first day of standardized testing in Texas is canceled for thousands of students due to widespread technical issues.

Teachers across North Texas began reporting problems issuing the STAAR test Tuesday morning. Students were being kicked out of tests, had trouble submitting answers, were unable to log back in, or were experiencing slow load times on the site.

It is not clear how many students were affected.

Keyshia Cole shows off her new boo! Keyshia Cole has a new love interest! Keyshia shared  pictures and videos to her Instagram story, hinting that she found love. Man I know the feeling when you’re in love and wanting the world to know but just don’t want to jinx it. So you tease the world a little, lol When you find someone that matches your energy, it just feels amazing and you go a little crazy in love and wanting the world to see and know who is behind making you smile and blush like crazy. Keyshia also shared a video of her holding hands with a man. She didn’t show his face. And I get it. Timing is everything! Everyone has an opinion that doesn’t even matter to Keyshia at this point. Why can’t everyone just be happy for others happiness… They’re going to be together regardless. 

Having someone that matches your energy is so cool and fun but hits are different and very hard to express. You don’t find that often at all. You just complete each other and you don’t ever want to leave that person. Hoping that the feeling is mutual in most cases it never is and about time it catches up it is too late or just on time. Yeah, she has been in several relationships and hasn’t found her ever after which she deserves and every woman wants. I’m sure she’ll find love and happiness and ever just can’t give up. Let’s cross our fingers that this is the one…
