— Lebanon students have completed more than 50 percent of their ISTEP testing as of Thursday, despite problems with the online testing format, said Will Pullins, assessment director for Lebanon Community School Corporation.

Final numbers were not available Thursday, but Pullins said 48.89 percent of testing was completed by the end of the day Wednesday.

“I’m hoping by the end of Monday, we have 98 percent of everything done,” he said.

The total number of test sessions in Indiana is 2.5 million — the total number of tests taken, and each student takes multiples tests. As of the end of Wednesday, 27.83 percent of test sessions statewide were complete.
