Indiana Department of Education releases 2017 ISTEP+ results


Spring ISTEP+ standardized test results were released Wednesday afternoon, and the Indiana Department of Education says scores stayed relatively stable in grades 3 through 8, whereas they rose slightly for 10th graders.

Statewide, 65.2 percent of students in grades 3-8 passed the English-Language Arts section compared to 66.1 percent in 2015-16. In math, 58.5 percent passed this year versus 58.9 percent the previous.

In 10th grade, 60.7 percent passed the English-Language Arts section compared to 59 percent in 2015-16. The increase was also seen in math, where 36.9 percent passed this year compared to 34.6 percent in 2015-16.

Officials say the ISTEP+ will be given once again during the 2017-18 school year, but the state is working toward transitioning to what is called ILEARN in 2018-19.

Officials say it assesses the same Indiana Academic Standards but ‘leverages computer adaptive testing to better inform educators about students’ strengths and weaknesses’. Hoosier educators are expected to begin collaborating on the development of that test this month.
