Recurring problems with an online system for administering proficiency tests had minimal impact on Minnesota students' scores this past spring, state education officials say.

Indiana, Kentucky, and Oklahoma also had problems with online proficiency tests in the spring. Those states use a different vendor to administer their tests, but their reviews also found the disruptions had little impact on students' scores.
