Computer shortages in Oregon public schools means about three-quarters of students will still take the paper writing exam with no spell check technology. You don’t have to be a good speller to be a good writer. That’s the message the Oregon Department of Education is sending its students. On Wednesday, students across the state will start taking their standardized writing exams, and for the first time, those doing their essays online will get to use spell check.
