OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma Schools Superintendent Janet Barresi says she will explore all options to ensure the needs of students and school districts are met following a series of technical glitches in student testing that caused testing to be stopped this week.

The testing resumed Wednesday.

Barresi and testing company CTB/McGraw Hill held a conference call Wednesday after the company experienced problems with online assessments for grades 6 through 12 Monday and Tuesday.

The glitches forced testing windows for grades 3-8 and end-of-instruction to be extended by two days. The last day for testing for grades 3-8 is now May 7 and the last day of end-of-instruction testing to May 14.

Students interrupted during English II and English III may retake the on-line portion but do not have to retake the writing portion.
