INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - - ISTEP online testing is now suspended for a second day.
The decision was made by the Department of Education after several schools in Indiana reported experiencing difficulties Tuesday morning.
Glenda Ritz, Indiana's Superintendent of Public Instruction said in a release that she is greatly disappointed and finds the interruptions frustrating and unacceptable.
Ritz said between 7:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Tuesday, more than 150,000 test sessions were completed. The problems began around 11:15 a.m.
John T. Althardt, director of School and Community Relations at Indianapolis Public Schools says the problems are similar to disruptions the district encountered Monday.
Officials say they believe the testing will be able to continue tomorrow.
The testing window for online testing has been extended by three days due to Monday's problems. Schools now have until May 15 to complete the testing.
The testing deadline for paper tests is still May 8 since it wasn't affected.
CTB McGraw Hill told the Indiana Department of Education that testing results will be delivered on time despite the server glitch on Monday.
