Performance Level Descriptors

ILEARN will not use Pass+, Pass, and Did Not Pass distinctions like ISTEP+. Students taking ILEARN will be placed into four categories based on their performance:


LEVEL 1: Below Proficiency

Indiana students below proficiency have not met current grade level standards. Students may require significant support to develop the knowledge, application, and analytical skills needed to be on track for college and career readiness.


LEVEL 2: Approaching Proficiency

Indiana students approaching proficiency have nearly met current grade level standards by demonstrating some basic knowledge, application, and limited analytical skills. Students may require support to be on track for college and career readiness.


LEVEL 3: At Proficiency

Indiana students at proficiency have met current grade level standards by demonstrating essential knowledge, application, and analytical skills to be on track for college and career readiness.


LEVEL 4: Above Proficiency

Indiana students above proficiency have mastered current grade level standards by demonstrating more complex knowledge, application, and analytical skills to be on track for college and career readiness.
