The Indiana Department of Education is releasing ISTEP scores to the families of students, but is still working on tallies for schools and school districts.
The release of scores has been delayed while reviews have been conducted into online testing glitches experienced by students.
A report released in July found about 80,000 students in third through eighth grade had at least one part of the statewide standardized test interrupted when server glitches from a state contractor kicked them offline. That's about 16% of all students who took the test.
An independent testing expert hired by the state determined that the interruptions had little effect on the scores, but still recommended about 1,400 results be thrown out to avoid tainting the other test scores.
School districts say it's important for parents to assess the scores, to get their students help they may need throughout the year.
"That's where we provide some additional remediation or some addition help, just to bring them to that next level," says Penn-Harris-Madison Assistant Superintendent Dr. Kay Antonelli.

Scores for schools and districts aren't available yet, they'll be coming out later this school year.
