INDIANAPOLIS – Wednesday, Indiana Department of Education released 2018 ISTEP+ results.
It tests students on more rigorous standards adopted in 2014 for English/Language Arts and Math.
IDOE said scores were stable across content areas in grades 3-8, with slight increases in grade 8 English/Language Arts and grade 3 Mathematics.
"ISTEP+ is one of the many tools Indiana uses to measure student achievement and this year's results indicate we are moving in the right direction," said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction. "Indiana's classrooms are full of dedicated educators who spend each day preparing our children for academic success, and I am grateful for their hard work."
Now students in grades 3-8 will take ILEARN, assessing the same standards as ISTEP+.
ISTEP+ Grade 10 continues to serve as the accountability assessment through the class of 2022, then the transition to the Graduation Pathways will take place.
