One thing became clear during the first meeting of the panel tasked with rewriting the ISTEP, Indiana’s standardized school assessment test.
Change will come slowly because there’s so much work to do.
And one legislator says the state may need to bring back the ISTEP to allow enough time to develop a good alternative.
The 23-member committee created by the 2016 Indiana General Assembly met for the first time on Tuesday.
The group has a December 1, 2016 deadline to evaluate different tests and recommend a replacement test.
