TOPEKA, KS --- The Kansas Board of Education will not be releasing the results from the statewide standardized tests after a cyberattack on the testing software

The testing software was designed by the University of Kansas and this was the first year of the new test.

The new computerized test featured more open ended questions and less multiple choice and was scheduled to be taken during school hours between March 10th to April 10th.

Schools across the state had problems administrating the reading and math test due to missing answers or the test just stopping.

The state releases test results each fall to help determine how well kansas schools are performing.  The U.S. Department of Education must still be in favor of the states' decision to not release the test results.
