Legislators Pondering Bill to Replace ISTEP Exam

By Network Indiana | Published on in Uncategorized

(STATEHOUSE) – House Republicans are still pondering whether to plunge ahead with a bill to replace the ISTEP exam. The Senate voted 46-3 for a bill which would abolish ISTEP after next year‘s test and replace it with something shorter and easier to grade in 2017. Speaker Brian Bosma says House Republicans agree with the goals of making ISTEP less costly and less time-consuming. But he says they‘re still trying to decide whether they have enough information to lock the state into replacing the test, or if the issue should go to a summer study committee for possible consideration next year.
