ISTEP Scores Released to Families but not yet School Districts

The highly controversial ISTEP scores were released to families, but the Indiana Department of Education has not given school district's their scores.
The highly controversial ISTEP scores were released to families, but the Indiana Department of Education has not given school district's their scores.

The release of scores has been delayed while reviews have been conducted into online testing glitches experienced by students.

A report released in July found about 80,000 students 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% 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 recommend about 1400 results be thrown out to avoid tainting the other test scores.

The tallies for individual school and school districts are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
