The wait is over after a series of delays plagued the state’s ISTEP testing. Parents should have received a special code that they can use to go online and see their child’s ISTEP results, including the scores that have been ruled invalid.
“There’s always room for improvement and we are always trying to find what’s the best thing for all of our kids,” said teacher Brown Elementary teacher Keelie King.
Computer problems plagued the testing this past spring, which led to last week’s announcement by State Superintendent Glenda Ritz that nearly 1,4000 ISTEP scores would be invalidated. Education officials said several hundred of them completed the English or math sections either too quickly or too slowly to be counted.
Brownsburg Community School Corporation Superintendent Jim Snapp said scores are up in math and language arts. He calls the results the highest in the district’s history.
