State Says 28K Students Affected By ISTEP Problem As Scores Are Released To Schools

The state has released this year’s ISTEP scores to schools and corporations after running into grading issues late last month. The results were initially scheduled to be made public last week.

The State Department of Education sent out a statement Monday saying the fix for a 10th grade math question increased 27,813 student scores. A second issue dealing with data collection on some paper exams affected 115 students across grade levels.

Schools and corporations will review the data before scores are presented to the state board later this fall.
