INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The release of the results of ISTEP tests taken by
Indiana students this spring is being delayed further,
WIBC-FM in Indianapolis reports State School Superintendent Glenda Ritz has
sent an email to school districts saying results would be sent to schools
and parents on Sept. 9.
Indiana Department of Education spokesman Daniel Altman clarifies that
that's a "target date."
Ritz said last month that the data would be released by the end of August.
The results have been delayed by investigations into online testing glitches
experienced by nearly 80,000 students last spring.
The email goes on to say the deadline for schools to submit improvement
plans also is being pushed back, to Nov. 1.
An independent study found the online testing problems had no measurable
negative impact on scores.
