(INDIANAPOLIS) — Indiana Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kevin Brinegar comments on the state’s ISTEP scores:

“The decline in English and math test scores is expected as a result of the significant enhancements to the college and career ready standards. In fact, Indiana’s scores were either on par or higher than other states which have recently gone through this process of moving to more rigorous tests.

“The good news is these needed changes ultimately will better prepare Indiana students for the workforce and sets a baseline so educators can pinpoint where improvements need to be made.

“We applaud both students and teachers for their strong efforts, and look forward to seeing the growth in student learning and college and career readiness in the coming years.”
