Statement from State Sen. Jeff Raatz regarding ILEARN

State Sen. Jeff Raatz (R-Richmond) made the following statement today regarding the 2019 ILEARN Scores:

STATEHOUSE (Aug. 26, 2019) — “Historically in Indiana, transitioning from one test to another creates the possibility for an adjustment period.

"In 2019 Indiana transitioned from ISTEP to ILEARN, which resulted in lower scores across our state. This is certainly not reflective of the hardworking school staff or the efforts of students in the learning process.

"In the coming months, we will look to provide relief from the effects of the new ILEARN assessment for school districts for one year so schools, teachers and students can adjust to the new exam."
