About the ISTEP Test

Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (usually referred to simply as ISTEP or ISTEP+) is an annual No Child Left Behind test designed by the Indiana Department of Education to measure students’ mastery of basic skills, particularly reading, writing, and mathematics. Before 2009 it was administered in the fall; beginning the 2009-10 school year it was administered in the spring. All students in grades 3 through 8 and high school sophomores take the ISTEP+ each spring, with language arts and math covered in each test.  Additionally, students in grades 4 and 6 are tested in science and 5 and 7 on social studies. The test consists of two components: a written test, usually in March, and a Multiple-choice test over the same subjects in April.

Successfully completing the final (grade 10) ISTEP+ Graduation Qualifying Exam (GQE) is not necessary to graduate from an Indiana public high school. This test covers English/Language Arts and Mathematics. If a student does not pass this test, he or she is placed in remediation classes the following semester for the subject(s) that he or she failed and will remain in these classes until the semester after passing both sections. Students can retake the exam during their junior and senior year of high school.

Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year the GQE was replaced by two End of Course Assessments (commonly known as ECAs), one for Algebra I and one for English 10, which functionally serve the same purpose and, like the GQE, can be retaken twice a year until students pass or reach the end of their senior years. During the 2012-2013 school year an ECA for Biology was added as a requirement for incoming freshmen.
