Summary

The Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) has been implemented as a summative measure of student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Grades 4 and 6), and Social Studies (Grades 5 and 7). In particular, ISTEP+ reports student achievement levels according to the Indiana Academic Standards that were adopted by the Indiana State Board of Education. Students in grades 3-8 and 10 participate in this statewide assessment.  The assessments are administered in two parts: Part 1 consists of applied skills (open-ended) items, and Part 2 includes multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items. Both Part 1 and Part 2 are required components of the ISTEP+ program and are used to measure student mastery of the Indiana Academic Standards.  Beginning with the class of 2019, ISTEP+ Grade 10 will become the graduation qualifying exam.
