Analysis shows improvement in schools

Krista J. Stockman of The (Fort Wayne) Journal Gazette used state education test data to compare results since the fall of 2000, finding that "the majority of Indiana schools have more students passing standardized tests." The paper analyzed scores for third, sixth, eighth and 10th grades, because those were the only grades tested in both 2000 and 2004. "Although many schools are still below the required standard, students in the lowest-performing schools have had the greatest improvement on the state's standardized test, ISTEP+, between the fall of 2000 and the fall of 2004. The majority of low-performing schools in 2000 saw improvement four years later at third, sixth, eighth and 10th grades."
