INDIANA (WAVE) - Spring 2013 ISTEP + results are expected from the Indiana Department of Education Monday.
An independent testing expert suggested Indiana toss out nearly 1,400 ISTEP + scores because of computer glitches. State Superintendent Glenda Ritz knows there is a lot at stake with the scores.
When thousands of Indiana school children were interrupted by server problems while trying to take the ISTEP test last spring many wondered whether the test scores would be validated. A half-million Indiana school children took the ISTEP test but 1,100 of those in math and 260 in language arts will be invalidated.
Parents will be given a code where they can go online and access their child's student information. There is only one more year of ISTEP before the state switches to a new test.
Negotiations with McGraw-Hill on a settlement in the case are ongoing.
