ISTEP+ testing begins next week


Follow The Republic:


This year's ISTEP+ assessment will test not only students, but also the patience of educators.

Schools across the state begin testing Monday and local officials are bracing for more technology glitches — although nearly half of the Columbus schools will have the test on paper.

After relentless petitioning to the state Department of Education, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. has permission to administer the assessment on paper at Clifty Creek Elementary School, Columbus Signature Academy Fodrea, Columbus Signature Academy Lincoln, Mt. Healthy Elementary School, Central Middle School and Northside Middle School.

Additional schools also are being allowed to test on paper and pencil for fifth and sixth grade.
