CTB/McGraw-Hill officials answer questions about disruptions to the spring ISTEP+ test.

Indiana schools will have to wait a little longer still for scores on state standardized tests.

Computer glitches halted the administration of spring ISTEP+ exams, triggering a formal review and delaying the results.

Schools had hoped to have scores by now, but an email sent to schools by the Department of Education they won’t be out until Sept. 9. That’s about three months later than usual.

Still, spokesman Daniel Altman says the date remains a “target.”

A testing expert concluded this summer the delays didn’t impact results. Superintendent Glenda Ritz has said her department will seek $614,000 in damages from testing company CTB/McGraw-Hill.
