INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WOWO): An audit of the beleaguered ISTEP Plus test system is over and a third-party review has determined computer glitches had no negative effect on the results.
This spring the state hired an independent group to study the test. The scores are a huge factor in judging the effectiveness of schools, educators and other factors.
Glenda Ritz, Indiana's Superintendent of Education says it’s hard to say how well students could have done without the interruptions, but the majority did just as well as if the interruptions hadn't happened.
