Scores from troubled Indiana test set for release
INDIANAPOLIS -- Scores from the problem-plagued ISTEP test that Indiana students took last spring are expected to be released Monday.
The public release of those scores has been delayed by the state Department of Education while reviews have been conducted into online testing glitches experienced by students.
A report released in July found about 80,000 students in third through eighth grade had at least one part of the statewide standardized test interrupted when server glitches from a state contractor kicked them offline. That's about 16 percent of all students who took the test.
An independent testing expert hired by the state determined that the interruptions had little effect on the scores, but still recommended about 1,400 results be thrown out to avoid tainting the other test scores.
