Seymour schools will take the ISTEP exam this week using pencil and paper because of problems during recent practice tests.
Problems connecting with ISTEP+ testing servers last week means Seymour Community Schools students will take the high-stakes exam using paper and pencil.
The Indiana Department of Education approved the switch from online testing late last week, Cortland Elementary School Principal Diane Altemeyer said Monday. She oversees assessment testing for the Seymour district.
Officials were awaiting the arrival of supplies and expect to start testing Wednesday, Altemeyer said.
