Local and state assessments are given to middle school students. The local assessments are based on the department and classroom teachers which include but are not limited to: leveled reading assessments, classroom tests, and performance tasks.


The Indiana Department of Education requires that middle school students participate in the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+). This assessment is administered in the spring of each school year. The intent of the testing is to measure student achievement in the following subject areas: English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Grade 6), and Social Studies (Grade 7). Some students may take Indiana Standards Tool for Alternate Reporting (ISTAR) and/or National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC) as an alternative assessment for ISTEP+.


The determination of assessments is based on the annual case review committee.
