JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. Indiana school districts are preparing to resume classes without a key piece of information they usually have to determine where to place students.

Spring ISTEP+ results have been delayed because of computer glitches that kicked thousands of students offline.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz is expected to announce results of a third-party review into the validity of this year's scores on Monday. But the News and Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/12iFuPe ) that's too late for many districts that have had to decide which students need remedial help and where to place students without any test scores in hand.

Schools typically receive ISTEP+ results in May.

School officials say they're eager to learn what the review found and whether the spring scores are valid.
