Our district has implemented a benchmark testing program. We've purchased a program that adapts subsequent questions based on student responses to prior questions; obviously, it's computer-based.
And the company's server had problems today, so testing at schools all across the country was screwed up. It was a nightmare.
Apparently yesterday's testing was as smooth as a baby's bottom, but today's was a bumpy as a 15-year-old acne-sufferer's face after eating a pound of chocolate.
You know what always works? A paper and pencil.
