Meet The Man Given 36 Hours To Fix ISTEP
By Friday, a two-man team of educational testing consultants is expected to have revamped this year’s ISTEP tests.
Ed Roeber says it normally takes as much as two years to do the job he’s expected to do in just two days.
And as of Wednesday afternoon, he hadn’t even received the information he needed from the state to do the work.
WBAA’s Charlotte Tuggle talked with Roeber as he waited for state leaders to provide him with the raw materials he hopes to make into a better, shorter ISTEP exam.
But he was careful to say the compressed time frame means state leaders likely won’t get a test that tracks both a student’s current achievement and one that’s set up to follow that student through their career.
