Students taking practice ISTEP exams experiencing disruptions

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Students taking practice ISTEP exams this week are experiencing more disruptions. Now, some Indiana school officials are worried about a rerun of last year's computer troubles.

Zionsville Schools say students experienced computers freezing up Monday and Tuesday, but there were no problems on Wednesday.

It's not the first time the test has been associated with such issues. A report found about 80,000 Indiana students had ISTEP exams interrupted last spring when server glitches from the contractor kicked them offline.

The Indiana Department of Education is working to ensure the exams can start next week as scheduled.
