ISTEP scores going out to families of students

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- ISTEP scores are going out to the families of students, but Indiana's Dept. of Education is still working on getting them out to schools and school districts.

The delay is due to reviews being conducted into glitches students coped with while taking the online tests.

A report back in July said about 80,000 students in third through eighth grade had at least one part of the standardized test interrupted.  That was because server glitches from a state contractor knocked them offline.  That number amounts to about 16 percent of the students who took the test.

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 determined that the interruptions had little effect upon the scores, but recommended that about 1,400 results be thrown out to avoid tainting the other scores.
