The next stress test for computer systems used in the ISTEP exam across Indiana was supposed to take place Tuesday.
Now, it won’t happen until sometime in February.
The stress test by ISTEP maker CTB/McGraw-Hill was delayed due to feedback the company received from schools, according to the Department of Education. The maker says it wants to make sure thousands of students can simultaneously take the online portion of the exam without incident.
Indiana Department of Education spokesman Daniel Altman says the first stress test took place last week.
