Indiana Department of Education Releases Spring 2017 ISTEP+ Results
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Department of Education today released the 2017 ISTEP+ results. Performance remained stable across content areas in grades 3-8, while for Grade 10 performance rose slightly.
ISTEP+ assesses more rigorous Indiana Academic Standards adopted in 2014 for English Language Arts and Mathematics. Altogether, ISTEP+ assesses English Language Arts, Mathematics in grades 3-8 and 10, Science in grades 4, 6 and 10, and Social Studies in grades 5 and 7. Current proficiency levels were established based on feedback from educators following the 2015 and 2016 test administrations.
Spring 2017 ISTEP+ results can be viewed by visiting: www.doe.in.gov/accountability/find-school-and-corporation-data-reports.
Indiana continues with ISTEP+ 3-8 and 10 during the 2017-18 school year as the Department works towards the transition to ILEARN in 2018-19. ILEARN assesses the same Indiana Academic Standards as ISTEP+, but leverages computer adaptive testing to better inform educators about students’ strengths and weaknesses. Recruitment of educators to contribute to the development of the ILEARN assessment begins in September.
