FRAMINGHAM (CBS) – An administrative error left students at a Framingham elementary school with less time to complete their state-mandated MCAS English exam.

More than a hundred fifth graders at Stapleton Elementary School were given the MCAS English exam on Monday at 10:30 a.m. instead of 9:30 a.m., leaving questions about whether they were given enough time.

School Superintendent Stacy Scott has reported the issue to state education officials, but he feels the error will not affect the results of the test.

“We think that the results of the test should be valid. We’ll double check to make sure that everybody got what they needed,” Scott told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Doug Cope. “We make every effort to make sure that the students have what they need to have a valid testing experience.”

Scott says the school has instituted a number of safeguards to make sure there are no additional testing issues.
