  INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana parents could get their children's scores on the annual ISTEP+ exams in about a month following a delay in tabulation caused by computer disruptions while students took the spring test.
 
  Department of Education spokesman David Galvin tells the Evansville Courier & Press that a third-party review ordered by state schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz is expected to wrap up this month. The Department of Education will then finalize and mail ISTEP+ scores to school districts.
 
  Districts typically receive results in May and mail them to parents about a week later.
 
  Thousands of Indiana students' tests were disrupted over several days this spring due to glitches with the online system operated by CTB/McGraw-Hill.
 
  The review by Richard Hill will determine whether those students' scores are valid.
