Students have only 26 days until ISTEP+ testing starts, and some teachers have emphasized that there is no better time to get prepared than now.
Students could be spending some of their time at home on these snow days — Seymour, Medora and Crothersville schools are closed again today, their 10th snow day this winter — preparing for the annual exams, which will be taken in Grades 3-8 this semester.
The Indiana Department of Education website offers an online practice session similar to the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus exam. The site can help students become familiar with what to expect, Seymour Sixth Grade Center Assistant Principal Becky Davis said.
