Welcome Principal Ms. Martin to East Washington Academy!
Believe it or not…in just a few short days (February 29th) our WILDCATS in grades 3 – 5 will begin taking the first part of the ISTEP + test. The purpose of the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus or ISTEP+ test is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Grades 4 and 6), 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. There are two parts to the assessment, an Applied Skills Open-Ended Assessment (Part 1) which is a paper/pencil test and a Multiple-Choice and Technology-Enhanced item Assessment (Part2) that will be completed online. Teachers are working with our students each and every day to make sure they are ready to handle this rigorous test. EWA is having a big ISTEP+ RALLY for SUCCESS (February 22-26) to get everyone “pumped up” and motivated to do their personal best work on this very important test. Parents can be an active participant in preparing your WILDCAT for ISTEP+. It’s really simple! Just remind your student to do the following things during our testing week:
