Tennessee DOE: TNReady testing resumes after 'issue' halts some exams


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) - The Tennessee Department of Education reports there were some challenges for students taking Tennessee Ready exams Monday.

According to the department, some schools had issues logging into the Nextera/Questar platform.

In Metro Nashville, MNPS spokeswoman Michelle Michaud says one high school has reported trouble saving tests. The Department of Education stated to MNPS, “We are aware of issues with Nextera and are investigating. Students currently testing should continue to test. Update to follow.”

In Wilson County, testing was suspended due to "state-wide issues," according to the district. However, students in grades 2-5 continued paper/pencil testing. The Department of Education later stated the issue was not state-wide and was not a "volume" issue.

In Williamson County, school officials said some students had difficultly and couldn't access their tests. As of 12:45 p.m., WCS had not received an explanation as to what was causing the issue, which affected grades 5-11. WCS will try to take tests again on Tuesday.

A Chester County school also canceled testing due to login issues.
