Purpose

The purpose of the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+) program is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Grades 4, 6 and 10), and Social Studies (Grades 5 and 7). In particular, ISTEP+ reports student achievement levels according to the Indiana Academic Standards that were adopted by the Indiana State Board of Education. The assessments are administered in two parts: Part 1 consists of applied skills (open-ended) items, and Part 2 includes multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items. Both Part 1 and Part 2 are required components of the ISTEP+ program and are used to measure student mastery of the Indiana Academic Standards.

Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program

It is with excitement to share with you that East Chicago Central High School has been invited to participate in the Advanced Placement Teacher Investment Program in partnership with the University of Notre Dame. This is a two-year partnership. The first year of the program will take place in the Fall of 2018.  The mission of their program is listed below:

Mission:

Prepare Indiana students for college by engaging them in rigorous math, science, and English coursework.  We support them by delivering high-quality professional development to their teachers and we continue to support those teachers through the use of our Content Directors.  We provide greater opportunities for students to engage in their work and we reward them for their success.  The two main goals are:

  • To increase the enrollment of students in math, science, and English Advanced Placement® courses in the schools participating in the project, and

  • To increase the number of qualifying scores (3, 4, or 5) on AP® math, science, and English exams in the schools participating in the project

We are excited about the resources that will be available to both our students and staff.
