Problems With ISTEP Test Delays Results

Aug 6, 2015

After informing the Department of Education this week that there are issues with scoring this year’s ISTEP test, the president of testing company CTB spoke during Wednesday’s State Board of Education meeting.

The scoring issues will mean a delay in receiving student scores and school accountability grades.

Indiana schools preparing for next week’s spring ISTEP test say they’re already having problem with the practice exam. Last spring, computer glitches interrupted more than 30,000 ISTEP testing sessions. 

To prepare students and teachers for the ISTEP testing that begins next week, many districts in  Indiana administered a practice test Tuesday. 

Fort Wayne Community Schools spokesperson Krista  Stockman says her district uses this practice test to find any problems with the school’s technology that  administers the test.
