Due to all the controversial concerns surrounding the amount of time and ISTEP testing, the actual testing has been reduced from 6.5 hours to 3.5hours. I fully support this decision. This week, students in grades 3-8 will take three online tests in English/Language Arts and one math test. Students in grades 4 and 7 will take a Science test online the following week. I will keep you posted on any ISTEP updates as we proceed into testing time.
