Indiana State Board of Education Seeks to Improve Literacy
July 8, 2020
The State Board of Education approved the optional use of the Indiana Reading Evaluation and Determination (IREAD-3) for 4th-grade students for the upcoming fall 2020 term. The goal of the IREAD-3 is to help local education officials make data-driven decisions surrounding the literacy of their students. Additionally, the Board also approved that the “ISTEP+ 10 be administered to 2020-2021 juniors” during the spring assessment window, as outlined by the state’s accountability plan required by ESSA.
