Leaders seek ISTEP answers



The Associated Press with Tribune staff reports

Indiana’s top Statehouse leaders all agree they’d like some answers from CTB/McGraw-Hill on the ISTEP+ failures, and they could get some as soon as the end of this week.

A legislative panel studying why 78,000 test-takers were frozen out of the high-stakes exam last month plans to meet Friday to hear from CTB/McGraw-Hill President Ellen Haley on what went wrong.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz, meanwhile, plans an outside review determining the validity of the test results. That could be completed within a month.

Both are aimed at finding out how the state’s can’t-fail test failed.
