MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It appears, following Monday's technical glitches, that the Florida Standards Assessment test is running smoothly in both Miami-Dade and Broward County.

When Miami-Dade students in grades 5 though 8 went to take the FSA, a computer-based test Monday, they couldn't because the testing company's servers were down.

The FSA was then canceled statewide due to technical glitches.

"This is now the second time we have experienced such issues," said Marie Izquierdo with the Miami-Dade School Board said Monday. "As you may recall we had similar issues with the writing assessment. This assessment in particular is for reading and mathematics."

Miami-Dade Public Schools posted about the problems on Twitter, saying the FSA vendor created log-in problems for students.

This is not the first time technical glitches cancels the FSA. In March, students in both Miami-Dade and Broward experienced similar glitches caused by a system failure and a cyber-attack.
