WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Schools in Wichita and surrounding districts are resuming state testing this week after many of the bugs in the new assessments appear to have been worked out.

The Wichita Eagle reports school districts across the state have reported technical glitches with the rollout of the new state tests, which began March 10. Because of those problems it's now unlikely that all students required to take the tests will take or complete them.

This year's tests are viewed as a trial run for a new type of assessment that reflects Common Core state standards. The State Board of Education said last month all public schools in Kansas will remain accredited next year regardless of how well their students fare on the tests.
