My previous two posts have concerned TESA, the Oregon online testing system developed and operated by Vantage Learning, and the technical issues that have come up that have forced the Oregon Department of Education to suspend testing using the system, which might force all Oregon schools to administer paper/pencil tests this spring.
I took a look at the Vantage Learning web site this morning hoping to find information from the company explaining their side of the issue. I did not find anything. I do find it a bit ironic that under the heading Success Stories, the first item listed it TESA, the Oregon State Achievement Testing system. The system that because of errors and technical issues has been deemed unusable by the Oregon Department of Education.
