Nebraska officials say they have pinpointed the source of technical problems that hampered statewide writing tests earlier this year.

About 500 students lost work, and 1,000 were shut out or kicked off the program for 40 minutes. Those students represent a little more than 3 percent of the state's 44,000 8th and 11th graders tested over a three-week period in January and February.

Officials say they intend to fix the problems before students take statewide reading, math, and science tests this spring.
