INDIANA (WLFI) - The Indiana Department of Education (DOE) is extending the ISTEP testing period by two days, and students are set to test back at full capacity Monday.
This comes after days of technical problems in the online exam system.
The DOE says schools reported minimal interruptions Wednesday and Thursday, after schools were asked to limit their daily test loads to 50 percent of normal levels.
Officials say more than 345,000 testing sessions were completed Thursday, up from more than 300,000 sessions Wednesday.
Nearly 1.2 million testing sessions were completed total this week, which is about 41 percent of expected testing sessions.
Schools now have until May 17 to finish ISTEP.
State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz says she'll make sure all students have enough time to take a fair test.
