Technical Difficulties Halt Online STAAR Tests Around the State
Earlier today, districts across the state, including the Fort Worth ISD, experienced connectivity issues with the STAAR Online Testing Platform (SOTP). ETS (the test vendor) has been posting updates to the STAAR Assessment Management System dashboard every 10 minutes to keep districts apprised of the progress in resolving the issue. At this time, connectivity issues with the SOTP have not been resolved. Work is continuing, and an update with be provided by no later than early tomorrow.
This issue impacts ONLY those FWISD students taking the online grade 4 Writing, grade 7 Writing, and English I. Thousands of other Fort Worth ISD students are continuing with the pencil and paper version of the tests, without interruption.
Updated information will be posted as it becomes available.
