LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – The University of Kansas says it has fixed problems with bandwidth the led to delays in schools across the state trying to administer practice reading and math tests.

When students took the tests last week, they experienced long delays and other problems with the testing platform.

The Center of Educational Testing and Evaluation at the university said Monday the problems occurred because so many schools tried to access the tests at the same time.

Neal Kingston, co-director of the center, says the center doubled its bandwidth late last week, which seemed to resolve the problem.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1bIDMLO ) that ensure no further problems, the center will triple its original capacity this week.
