The purpose of the (ISTEP+) program for grades 3 through 8 is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  Beginning in 2015-16, the Grade 10 ISTEP+ test replaces End of Course Assessments in Algebra I and English 10 as the assessment used for accountability in high school English/Language Arts and Mathematics.

ISTEP+ Experience

The IDOE is pleased to announce the ISTEP+ “Experience” opportunity is now available through Pearson. Experience is presented via the Pearson online platform (TestNav 8) that will be used for ISTEP+ online testing, as well as IREAD-3 online testing. The purpose of Experience is for students, educators, parents, and community members to see how test items similar to those on the ISTEP+ Part 2 assessment are presented in the online system. Experience makes a great classroom-based activity!
