STATEHOUSE (March 28, 2023) – A bill authored by State. Sen Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) that would require a summary of a student's statewide testing results to be included on their statewide assessment report passed the House of Representatives today and will now head to the governor's desk.
Senate Enrolled Act 168 would require the Indiana Department of Education to ensure their statewide assessment vendors provide easy-to-read summaries of a student's results on their statewide assessment report, which would assist teachers and families in understanding what subjects their students may be struggling in.
"There are concerned parents who receive their child's state-administered test results and feel they do not completely understand what subject areas their child needs additional help in," Leising said. "By making K-12 statewide assessment results easier to read, instructors and families can make better-informed decisions regarding their child's education."
SEA 168 will now be sent to the governor for further consideration. To learn more about the bill, visit iga.in.gov.
State Sen. Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) represents Senate District 42, which includes
Decatur, Fayette, Ripley and Rush counties, and portions of Franklin, Jennings and Shelby counties.
