West Central Students to Begin ISTEP, IREAD Testing

West Central School Superintendent Charles Mellon

Students at the West Central School Corporation will be engaged in testing this month. Superintendent Charles Mellon talks about what tests will be administered.

“We have a full slate of ISTEP and I think we have acuity testing also in March,” said Mellon. “We also have the IREAD test which will be most interesting this year. This is the year that if you’re not reading a grade level by the end of the third grade, then you have to retake the test after some remediation and if you still do not pass it after the second test, you then have to take the same third grade IREAD test the following year. So, your instruction is then a year behind.”

The IREAD results are expected back to the corporation in April.
