Indianapolis schools encounter more ISTEP+ glitches

INDIANAPOLIS – Indianapolis students trying to complete standardized tests that already have been delayed by technical issues have encountered more problems.

Indianapolis Public Schools spokesman John Althardt said the district experienced a disruption Monday and had to briefly suspend the exam until the system came back online.

Testing across the state was suspended for two days earlier this month after test administrator CTB/McGraw-Hill experienced disruptions.

McGraw-Hill Education spokesman Brian Belardi said Monday’s outage lasted about 10 minutes and was caused by a technical issue.

He didn’t know whether any other school districts were affected.

The disruptions have raised concerns about the validity of this year’s scores. Indiana Schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz said the state will meet with CTB/McGraw-Hill and may have a third party weigh in.

Testing is scheduled to end Friday.
