Student Assessment

Indiana Diagnostic Assessment Tools
Computer-based instructional tools (mCLASS and Acuity) are designed to offer immediate feedback on student masteryof Indiana’s state academic standards. These assessments better help diagnose student learning needs, focus instruction accordingly, and predict whether students are on track to pass ISTEP+. These tools support reading and mathematics instruction for grades K-2 with expanded support for grades 3-8 in English/language arts, mathematics, science and  social studies.  Acuity assessments are aligned with the Indiana State Curriculum Maps and MSD of Steuben County Curriculum.

  ECA Spring    


Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) measures what students know and are able to do at each grade in levels 3-8. Based on Indiana's Academic Standards, ISTEP+ provides a learning check-up to make sure students are on track in their learning. Testing occurs in the spring and is given in two parts. The first is in early March and is composed of written-response questions. The second part occurs in late April through early May and is composed of multiple-choice questions. 
End of Course Assessment (ECA)
Aligned with Indiana’s Academic Standards these assessments are final exams measuring what students know and do upon completion of targeted Core 40 courses: Algebra I, English 10, Biology 1. Students in grade twelve who did not pass the Graduation Qualifying Evaluation in tenth grade are given two testing sessions this school year. 

English Learner Assessment
The purpose of the English Learner assessment is to determine a student's level of English proficiency. The placement test, administered upon the student's arrival in the United States, is used to determine the EL services appropriate for the student. The annual assessment, administered in January and February, is used to determine the student's current level of English proficiency and is used for accountability purposes.
