TPCA Spirit Night at Chick-fil-A on Nov 19
Dear Parents of last year's 3rd-8th grade students,
As you are aware, the Department of Education has released preliminary test results from last spring's ISTEP+ testing for students in grades 3-8.. You should have received a letter from DOE earlier this week and sent by the school which provided login information to access your child's scores.
After a six-month delay in releasing scores, many schools across the state are reporting that their students' scores are lower than previous years for various testing issues. The State Department of Education has had many discussions with lawmakers about this issue and they will be adjusting scores to compensate for the issues that the test had in its delivery and content. If you are not familiar with the issues that the Spring ISTEP+ test had, I would encourage you to do a Google search for "Indiana ISTEP+ test issues or problems". It is important to note that FINAL test results for each student will be available Dec. 22, again through the Parent Network. We will communicate with you about that release date as it approaches.
While we see the ISTEP+ test as a tool to assess student's academic knowledge, we also see it as only one part of a complex process of evaluating and assessing student academic progress. Our teachers will also compare this information with NWEA testing results throughout the year as well as classroom assessments. Along with your help at home, we will continue to add to and enhance your child's curriculum to help them grow in their academics as well as their faith in Christ Jesus.
Thank you for partnering with us in your child's education and future!
Ms. Julie Harris, School Counselor
