This Year’s ILEARN Report Meaningless

STATEWIDE — Indiana’s latest school report card doesn’t mean a thing, says the state’s Department of Education. Dr. Jennifer McCormick released this year’s ILEARN report on Wednesday. But because students didn’t actually take the test last year, she says the grades for public schools are meaningless. Indiana lawmakers are looking to replace the state’s standardized test, and agreed last year to not punish schools who didn’t perform up to task. But then the coronavirus canceled last spring’s tests. That means this year’s school report card grades are based on the 2018 test numbers.
