KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Standardizing testing is on hold in more than a dozen states because of Internet problems at the University of Kansas where the test developer is based. The university's Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation provides general end-of-year assessments for students in Kansas and Alaska. It also offers testing for students with significant cognitive disabilities in those states and 14 others. Issues arose Tuesday when a backhoe severed a major fiber cable. Testing was canceled for the rest of the day before resuming Wednesday but was again suspended Thursday afternoon because of service disruptions. After students again experienced problems Friday morning, the testing suspension was resumed. Center director Marianne Perie said she hoped the issues would be resolved by Monday.
