WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

More Wichita Falls ISD students were impacted by issues during STAAR testing this past April than initially thought. 

The Texas Tribune reports more than 100,000 5th and 8th-grade students in Texas were affected by issues while testing.

That number is 30,000 students more than previously estimated. 

The Texas Board of Education threw out the results for 71,000 students following the technical issues while testing.

WFISD officials told us on Thursday, the increase in students had not affected individual scores at all. 

In April, WFISD officials said told us around 30 students were impacted by the glitches while they were taking the test but all were able to complete the test after a short break. 

Thursday, officials said around 110 of the 8,5000 students who tested were impacted by the glitches.
