ISTEP shows increase in statewide student performance

The Indiana Department of Education released statewide and local 2014 ISTEP+ scores Monday morning.

There is some good news.

More than 80 percent of Indiana students passed the English/Language Arts portion of the test, up from 79.5 percent in 2013.

In Math, more than 83 percent passed, up from 83 percent in 2013.

More than 74 percent of Indiana students passed both English/Language Arts and Math, up from 73.7 percent last year.

IPS schools performed below average on ISTEP testing, with a little more than 51 percent passing both portions of the test.

The overall positive news prompted Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz to issue the following statement.

"This year, we saw yet another increase in student performance indicated through ISTEP," she said. " I want to congratulate Indiana's students, parents, teachers and administrators for all their hard work this past year. These increased scores are just one sign of the great learning that is happening in Indiana Schools."
