My life as an at-home momma of 3 amazing kids...it's kind of like shoveling snow in a blizzard.

ISTEP testing moves to spring in 09-08 school year

Next year they will finally move the ISTEP test to the spring so that students will be tested on what they have learned in the current school year instead of the past school year. IMO, this should make the test results much more useful. And hopefully it will do away with some of the "cramming for the test" that happens in the first quarter of the school year now.

Unfortunately, it does mean that next year students will have to take ISTEP twice. Once in the fall to cover what they learned in the past school year and then again in the spring to cover what they've learned in the current year.
