Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indiana Department of Education has released the ISTEP+ scores for the 2016-2017 academic year. The results come as the department is reviewing proposals for a vendor to operate the exam's replacement, ILEARN.

The results say 65.2 percent of students in grades 3-8 passed the English/Language Arts section, 58.5 percent passed the Mathematics section and 51.5 percent passed both sections. The numbers are nearly flat compared to last year's exam.

The IDOE says 60.7 percent of students in grade 10 passed the ELA section, 36.9 percent passed the Mathematics section and 34.4 percent passed both sections. The numbers are up slightly from the previous year.

Additionally, 63.2 percent of 4th and 6th grade students passed the Science section, 57.1 percent of 10th grade students passed the Science section and 63.5 percent of 5th and 7th grade students passed the Social Studies section.

The 2017-2018 academic year will be the final year for students taking the ISTEP+ exam. The IDOE is set to transition to Indiana's Learning Evaluation Assessment Readiness Network, or ILEARN, in the 2018-2019 year.

Earlier this year, the IDOE released a Request For Proposals to find an operator for the new exam. The vendor will also be responsible for operating the IREAD-3 exam, which is given to Hoosier third graders.
