ISTEP testing last year in Indiana was challenging to say the least.
Many students had problems taking the test because they were kicked off line many times.
Now many are wondering if this year will be any better.
During practice testing last week in the Zionsville Community Schools near Indianapolis students experienced computers that froze up.
This week’s Indiana problems are similar to those that led Oklahoma on Monday to suspend its online standardized test.
The Indiana Department of Education said fewer than 10 percent of more than 300 ISTEP calls through Wednesday this week have been related to computer difficulties.
McGraw-Hill said that this week’s problems were due to increased security measures.
The Indiana Department of Education signed a four-year, $95 million contract with CTB/McGraw Hill for the online test.
