Statewide ISTEP scores see small gains

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Results for the 2014 ISTEP+ released Monday indicate slight increases in performance compared to 2013.

Statewide, 80.7 percent of students passed English, compared to 79.5 percent in 2013. In math, statewide scores increased from 83 percent in 2013 to 83.5 percent this year.

Indianapolis Public Schools saw small gains in English scores and a slight drop in math scores corporation-wide. In 2014, the school system had 60.4 percent of its tested students pass the English portion, compared to 59.4 percent in 2013. The percentage of tested students who passed math dropped from 66.2 percent to 65.2 percent.

Arlington High School, which was taken over by Tindley Accelerated Schools in 2012 due to poor performance, improved from 2013 — although the future of the school remains unclear due to financial concerns. Overall, 45.2 percent of Arlington’s students passed English — a big jump compared to the 31.6 percent who passed in 2013. Math scores also saw a big jump, with 56.3 percent of students passing in 2014, compared to 41.7 percent in 2013.
