ISTEP Changes


Today we got a first glimpse of possible ISTEP changes. The state panel assigned to come up with an alternative to the standardized test sent its recommendations to the General Assembly.

Among the suggestions:

  • Test results should be accurate and delivered in a timely manner. Ideally within one month.
  • Local schools should decide how to include the results of state tests in teacher evaluations.
  • Any changes should be deployed quickly. However, the panel noted that experts advise a timeline of two years.
