ISTEP+ testing wasn't disrupted


Follow The Republic:


Area schools did not experience major disruptions during the opening week of online ISTEP+ testing — a welcome change from last year, and a surprise to local educators.

Bartholomew Consolidated and Flat Rock-Hawcreek school corps. indicated that they had braced for glitches when starting online testing last week.

That's because problems with test vendor CTB/McGraw-Hill's servers last year interrupted more than 80,000 students across the state, and practice and stress tests conducted earlier this year did not ease local concerns.

Lisa Smith, principal at Hope Elementary, said her students encountered a few "please wait" messages, but that was to be expected.
