INDIANAPOLIS (21Alive) - State Superintendent Glenda Ritz, D-Ind., announced Wednesday a settlement over ISTEP testing between the Indiana Department of Education and CTB/McGraw-Hill.
The $3 million settlement covers computer glitches during ISTEP+ testing in the spring of 2013.
Disruptions caused delays, postponements and rescheduling of exams for some 80,000 Hoosier students in grades 3-8 due to problems with CTB/McGraw-Hill software.
An independent review in July of 2013 found "no negative impact" to students for the glitches.
The settlement was agreed upon in October, Ritz says, to the chagrin of some members of the Indiana State Board of Education who questioned why the settlement was not announced earlier.
CTB/McGraw-Hill was given a one-year extension to administer the test through the spring of 2015.
