Online Testing for PCSSD

State mandated tests moving to online for district's across Arkansas.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - These days, you're lucky if you have one computer in a classroom for students to work on.

Soon all students across Arkansas will have to take  *state mandated* tests online. But will school districts be ready?

Linda Remeley, Assistant Superintendent for the Pulaski County Special School District (PCSSD) knows the trial of making sure every student has a computer to use in class.

"Absolutely it's possible, we're working hard towards reaching that goal," she says.

The district will soon follow more than two dozen states, in moving all state mandated tests online.

"We're providing what you maybe call a computer but a device, per child," Remeley explains.

To help ensure teachers and administrators understand how this will work, they can get involved and ask questions through a Twitter town hall series.

"I think any way to get the message out to teachers, parents and students about what's coming, so they are better prepared," she says.

Online testing will start in the 2014 - 2015 school year.
