Starting at roughly 9:00am EST through 12:30 EST our website experienced intermittent outages. We’ve already heard from a number of teachers that this led to issues in accessing or submitting Create Performance Tasks. At this point we believe your students should be able to access their projects. We are very sorry if this impacted your class. If your students were unable to submit their PT this morning, please let us know. (Email email@example.com or reply to this post). We have already reaching out to the College Board and are working on a solution so that affected students can submit their projects tomorrow.
More details on the issue if you are interested…
We did a routine database upgrade this weekend that caused some queries to take much longer than they did before once traffic spiked this morning. Our engineers have been working on it all morning. As a temporary fix, they have disabled the teacher dashboard views for teachers with very large sections. This has brought the site back up for all students. They are still investigating what happened and we’ll let you know as we figure it out. Again we’re very sorry for the disruptions in your classroom.
