ISTEP is a test that challenges students abilities and tests their capabilities. It tests students levels in basic skills such as mathematics, English, and writing. Istep helps education officials see where students are in schools. They look at their test scores and evaluate the level of education they may be receiving at that school. Now any class after 2019 will be required to have mastery over these subjects in order to graduate. According to Indystar.com Ray Richardson was the founder of the ISTEP test. He later says in the article that he regretted thinking of the test and wishes he had never done it. He also says that the ISTEP test has turned into something that he never wanted and is sorry for its creation. The ISTEP test was not supposed to be the way it is and was never intended to be that way says the founder of the idea of the ISTEP. He made a bill about the ISTEP, it was passed and the company that officially made the ISTEP created something that was not apart of Ray Richardson’s idea when he created the bill. So the ISTEP test that is here today is a twisted version of the original creators idea for a test that could help students get on track with their credentials.
