Fewer than 30 percent of K-12 school technology leaders believe their districts are ready for online assessments, according to an annual survey by the Consortium for School Networking.

That's potentially a big worry, given that versions of online exams aligned to the Common Core State Standards are already being administered in some states.

In other findings from the survey, 84 percent of respondents said they expect instructional materials in their districts to be at least 50 percent digital within the next three years, and more than half reported not having enough staff to effectively integrate new technology into the classroom.
