Common Core test day is never easy, but even more so when the computer crashes.
The State Education Department says students at more than 260 districts experienced technical issues as they tried to take their English Language Arts exams on Wednesday.
Officials say the problems were due to failures on the part of Questar, the company that administers the tests.
While nearly 50,000 students statewide did complete the exams, officials say it will probably be up to each individual district to decide how and when the students confronted with computer issues make up the tests.
