SWAC Reschedules ISTEP Testing for May 6th

ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (WOWO):  Tuesday afternoon leaders with Southwest Allen County Schools decided to stop using the online ISTEP exams and now they've rescheduled the testing for May 6th.

School officials released the following statement in regards to their announcement: 

“As of 2:00 PM today, the Southwest Allen County Schools have lost confidence in CTB McGraw Hill and their ability to successfully complete ISTEP testing this week. Therefore, the schedule for ISTEP exams for grades 3-8, as well as IMAST assessments, will resume next Tuesday morning, May 6. Again, thank you for your patience.”

Fort Wayne Community Schools have already dropped the online version of the ISTEP tests for traditional paper tests, following issues with a practice run last week.
