Accountability Assessment Transition

Beginning in 2015-16, the Grade 10 ISTEP+ test replaces End of Course Assessments in Algebra I and English 10 as the assessment used for accountability in high school English/Language Arts and Mathematics.

Purpose

The purpose of the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+) Grade 10 program is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics and Science. In particular, ISTEP+ reports student achievement levels according to the Indiana Academic Standards that were adopted by the Indiana State Board of Education. An Applied Skills (open-ended) Assessment (Part 1) and a Multiple-Choice and Technology-Enhanced item Assessment (Part 2), which are required components of the ISTEP+ program, are used to measure these standards.

ISTEP+ Grade 10 Results

  • Coming Fall 2016

Blueprints

The purpose of the test blueprints, designed with the help of Indiana classroom teachers, is to make transparent to educators the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of students on the assessments.

The blueprints can be used as tools to:

  • Align expectations regarding mastery of the standards;
  • Identify the degree of emphasis of curricular components;
  • Assist and guide in prioritizing curriculum and instructional planning; and
  • Enhance classroom assessment.
 

Item Samplers

The Item Samplers on this website provide information about ISTEP+ for students, parents, educators, and others. The items in each sampler are examples of the types of items found on ISTEP+. These examples can serve as models when teachers are constructing items for classroom assessment. It should be noted that the samplers are not practice tests.
