ISTEP+ tests: schools here, across the state try again
Schools in Adams County, along with those across the state of Indiana, were scheduled to resume ISTEP+ testing today after two days of computer glitches.
The Indiana Department of Education issued a statement Tuesday evening saying it was ready to resume the required standardized proficiency tests Wednesday after two days of computer glitches affecting the exams’ online portion.
North Adams, Adams Central and South Adams schools experienced disruptions.
"We had periods where we were off 10 minutes, back on for 8 minutes ... it was like that all day," Adams Central Elementary Principal Aaron McClure said after the first day's problems. "It might be one student who was locked out of the system or an entire group. It was very frustrating."
