Windows for ISTEP and IMAST testing were extended this year due to inclement winter weather by the SBOE or Indiana State Board of Education. This means that children will be taking multiple choice state tests up until May 13 for the ISTEP and May 9 for the IMAST.
According to the board, multiple school cooperations had requested an extension on the testing windows.
“The change is anticipated to provide flexibility for school districts that lost instructional days due to severe winter weather,” wrote Media Contact Lou Ann Baker for the SBOE.
The ISTEP is the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress, a test created by the Indiana Department of Education administered in the spring since 2009. It was administered in the fall before that.
The ISTEP meets the requirements of the federal requirement for standardized testing under No Child Left Behind.
The multiple choice test covers English language, science, reading, writing, and math.
The IMAST or Indiana Modified Achievement Standards Test is a similar test including social studies.
The SBOE introduced these changes last month at their board meeting.
