ST. PAUL, Minn. - A standardized math test for about 15,000 students in Minnesota was disrupted by computer problems.

 

The state Department of Education temporarily suspended online testing Tuesday when a computer server malfunctioned and some students were prevented from logging on to the system while others had to end their tests prematurely.

 

The testing vendor, American Institutes for Research says system engineers pinpointed the cause of the problem. Company vice president Jon Cohen said that testing should be fine today when it resumes.
