Many schools across New Hampshire this week are administering the new Smarter Balanced exam for the first time.
This is the first week of a 12-week testing window for schools to give the assessment.
The rollout hasn’t gone completely as planned, after some students were accidentally given a practice version of the exam.
Officials at three Manchester schools said some students will have to retake the test.
