Pence: Report provides insight to future ISTEP+ test

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Governor Mike Pence released a report for the ISTEP+ efforts to shorten the test.

Pence recognized consultants Edward Roeber and Bill Auty for their work.

“I commend these nationally-recognized assessment experts, Edward Roeber and Bill Auty, for their efforts to thoroughly and efficiently review and make recommendations to shorten the 2015 ISTEP+ test-Indiana’s students, teachers and families deserved no less,” said Governor Pence. “In addition, their report provides insights to be considered regarding the 2016 ISTEP+ test, and we appreciate their forward-looking approach.”

A bill was signed by Pence on Feb. 23 to shorten the ISTEP+ test after it passed unanimously through the House and Senate.
