Hundreds of Johnson County students were interrupted when they tried to take the annual ISTEP exam online Monday due to a technical problem with the company that conducts the test.

Third- through eighth-grade students at Center Grove, Clark-Pleasant, Franklin, Greenwood and Nineveh-Hensley-Jackson schools were repeatedly knocked offline or had their computer screens freeze after testing was underway.

Some students were able to log back on and finish sections of the test but were continually interrupted by the connectivity problem, school officials said. Other students who couldn’t log back on couldn’t complete the sections.
