Education, From The Capitol To The Classroom

What’s The Latest With ISTEP+?

    Last week was a busy one for lawmakers, as they scrambled to try to fix the spring ISTEP+ test.

    Following outcry over the longer length of the test, Governor Mike Pence, State Superintendent Glenda Ritz, the Department of Education and State Board of Education got to work with a pair of national consultants to whittle down test times. And as is generally the case with state education matters, state board relations came into play, as well.

    The issue now goes to the General Assembly, who will race against the clock to approve test changes before students sit for the first portion next week.

    Get caught up on the latest ISTEP+ news with clips from Friday’s episodes of Noon Edition and Indiana Newsdesk:
