A decision made by the Indiana State Board of Education in August has the DOE (Department of Education) evaluating the readiness of Indiana schools to administer the multiple-choice portion of the ISTEP+ assessments test electronically.
The DOE is requiring schools to have at least one grade level in each school building with grades 3-8 take that portion of the test online.
Only the multiple-choice portion is offered online; all students will take the applied skills portion of the test on paper.
PLYMOUTH â€” Friday, WTCA-AM 1050 will be working 9 to 5 to make some local kidsâ€™ Christmas a little brighter.
The radio station will host its fourth annual Shop With a Cop radio auction with all the proceeds going to the FOP Lodge #195 yearly program that takes as many kids in need in the county Christmas shopping as possible. Last year the program helped over 300 kids have a Christmas they might not have had otherwise.
PLYMOUTH â€” Thereâ€™s an old adage in coaching that says things are never quite as bad or as good as they seem.

PLYMOUTH â€” â€śWe want you exploring. We want you learning new things and new software.â€ť
Students involved in Lincoln Junior Highâ€™s â€śGeniusâ€ť program sponsored by Apple Computer heard that urging from Plymouth Schools Media Specialist Ben Waymouth as they went through their first day of training from Kevin Sheppard â€” a consultant contracted with Apple â€” on trouble shooting the schoolâ€™s new Macbook computers. Students were chosen to participate in the program, making them the first line of help when another student is having â€śtechnical difficultiesâ€ť with their computer.
PLYMOUTH â€”Â Just consider Clay Yeo Triton's one-time not-so-secret weapon off the bench.
Bumped from the starting lineup following a weekend bout with illness, the 6-foot-5 super sophomore erupted for 20 of his game-high 25 points in the second half and ripped down four rebounds to lead the Class A No. 2 Trojans to a 55-37 boys basketball win over Plymouth at The Rock Tuesday.
"We thought we'd give (Plymouth) the element of surprise," Triton head coach Jason Groves joked. "I'm sure they weren't expecting (Yeo) to do anything off the bench.
WALKERTON â€” John Glenn may eventually be able to use its team speed against opponents this year, but South Bend Riley gave the Falcons a dose of their own medicine Tuesday.
The athletic Wildcats showcased their quickness and athleticism while cranking up the tempo on both ends of the floor for a 79-49 victory in Walkerton.
"I know they don't want to run with us per se, but they also don't want to walk it," said Riley head boys basketball coach Mark Johnson. "I think we presented a tempo to where they were a little bit rushed. That's a credit to our young men."
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth EMS/Fire Department may be losing an important employee, but they are gaining a key volunteer.
A seemingly permanent fixture in the Plymouth firehouse â€” Assistant Chief John Grolich â€” is looking at his retirement, but he is proof that public service is in his DNA.
â€śThere is some traveling that my wife and I want to do, but I plan on staying on as a volunteer,â€ť said Grolich. â€śI think I still have something to offer and Iâ€™m going to try to help as much as I can.â€ť
