Problems Did Not Affect ISTEP Scores

After a computer problem this spring caused thousands of students across the state to be kicked off line during ISTEP testing, officials hired a firm to study the effects. 

Earlier this year, the technical problems caused delays in over 90 percent of schools statewide.

Now their study results are in and they say that the glitch did not have any measurable impact on scores. 

The report says that the majority of students scored as well as they would have, if the interruptions had never happened, in fact scores actually improved from last year. State Superintendent Glenda Ritz has said that she wants McGraw Hill, the company that administered the test, to improve its system so this doesn't happen again. 

Ritz has also given schools flexibility on teacher pay and evaluation to minimize any negative effects of the testing problems.
