EdWeek’s Technology Counts, just out yesterday, shows that computerized testing like that Oregon was using before its troubles with Vantage Learning has been relatively slow to spread (Tracking U.S. Trends): “The number of states that offer computerized statewide assessments is relatively small, with 14 states making that opportunity available on a limited basis, such as within certain districts, or for students retaking pencil-and-paper tests. And only nine states offer computer-based testing to all students.”

Make that thirteen.
