This booklet provides parents and students with answers to their questions about ISTEP+ (Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus), which measures tenth-grade student achievement in English/language arts and mathematics. After a letter from Suellen Reed, Indiana's Superintendent of Public Instruction, the booklet discusses what ISTEP+ is and what it tests, and presents answers to 10 frequently asked questions. It then discusses how to read and interpret the detailed information about student performance included in the ISTEP+ report; what to do if test scores do not seem to match classroom performance; additional resources for information about ISTEP+; English/language arts proficiency content standards tested on the tenth-grade ISTEP+; and the Mathematics Proficiency Content Standards tested on the tenth-grade ISTEP+. A 14-item glossary of assessment terms is attached. (RS)
