Thousands of students took a test Tuesday morning, but it doesn't matter how they do.

FOX23’s Eddie Randle talked to school officials about why the state is forcing students to take what the superintendent is calling a "stress test.”
The state calls the tests an online readiness test; they are a requirement for most public schools throughout Oklahoma.

According to Broken Arrow Superintendent Jerrod Mendenhall this is mandated by the state to determine if the testing vendors are prepared for this year’s state test.

He said he received an email that this is a required test. And that if a district chose not to participate then the state could withhold funding, revoke certifications and refuse to recognize a district as an accredited institution.

Mendenhall said his district exceeds the minimum operating requirements for a successful state testing.

He said the only problems Broken Arrow Public Schools experienced last year were errors made by testing vendors.
