TULSA - Statewide school testing came to a halt Monday and Tuesday after a testing company's server failed during the state's online exams.
Many Green Country schools say they have experienced complications with online assessments with the state's testing company CTB/Mcgraw Hill.
Students say they were repeatedly knocked offline during their exams.
"This has been going on for a whole bunch of students. My English one. My brother and my friend were taking the test and I saw the computer go completely black," said Nathan Hale High School student Bill Mosley.
The State Board of Education says nearly 4,000 students were affected by the outages.
"I'm trying to focus on something on my test really hard and that's stopping me taking my test and graduating," said Nathan Hale High school student Roberto Gijon.
The service outages has outraged many officials including Nathan Hale High School Principal Caleb Starr.
"Companies that are going to bid on these contracts with the state of Oklahoma should be prepared to hold up their end of the bargain," said Starr.
State officials say they will try to offer paper tests to eliminate issues with a server failure. They also working to extend testing windows for schools.
