(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Education is looking into the interruptions some students had with their ISTEP tests.

The interruptions included students being logged off while taking the tests.

Lauren Auld with the Indiana Department of Education says things are looking better with the ISTEP testing.

She says CTB McGraw Hill, which creates and scores the tests, are working to figure out the problem and correct it.

She says the responses of tests that were interrupted will be compared with those that weren't to make sure there weren't any inconsistencies.

Over 500,000 students in grades three through eight take the ISTEP test.

Auld says about 200,000 are taking the multiple choice section of the test online.

Of those, about 10,000 tests were affected by the interruptions.

Some schools were given an extension to finish the tests because of the interruptions.
