Testing Milestones Online?

We heard from the state DoE that Milestones online testing had glitches. Indeed, we had a few here too. Overall though, online testing went smoothly for students in grades 3-5. In fact, when we asked our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students if they preferred testing online or paper pencil for Milestones this is what they said (below). We also asked them for ways in which the online administration might be improved and sent those recommendations on to the county and the state.
