INDIANAPOLIS - Based upon assurances made by CTB McGraw-Hill, the Indiana Department of Education will continue ISTEP+ testing for Hoosier school tomorrow, Thursday, May 2.

The Department remains committed to working with schools to ensure that they have the time they need to guarantee all Hoosier students have the opportunity to take a fair test.
