TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Florida’s testing glitches are continuing despite assurances from state officials that problems have been fixed.

Education Commissioner Pam Stewart told legislators on Thursday that on the third day of testing students were able to log into the online portal being used for the test. Students in middle school and high school are using the portal to take a required standardized writing test.

But the Florida Times-Union (rhttp://bit.ly/1DPYGAu) reported that Duval County was forced to suspend testing shortly after it began on Thursday morning. The school superintendent said students saw blank screens when trying to log in.

Three of Florida’s largest counties in South Florida were also scheduled to resume testing on Thursday. Officials in those counties had halted testing earlier in the week due to problems.
