A move to replace ISTEP with a shorter test is on legislators' radar for a second straight year -- but the House and Senate have traded places.
Both chambers have passed bills calling for a study of what should replace ISTEP.
But the House bill abolishes ISTEP when the current contract runs out next year, with a new test making its debut in 2018.
Last year, it was the Senate which voted to eliminate ISTEP -- the House wanted to review the issue.
House Speaker Brian Bosma (R-Indianapolis) says both chambers agree ISTEP is what he calls “a broken brand.”
