Indiana students trail pre-pandemic marks



Indianapolis, Indiana – On statewide standardized tests given last spring Indiana students had small improvements in their English and math scores, as results give a tentative bright spot after COVID-19 disruptions to classrooms over the past three school years.

According to results for the spring 2022, ILEARN exam released Wednesday by the Indiana Department of Education, the statewide percentage of students meeting their grade expectations for math climbed to 39.4% from 2021′s 36.9%.

The English proficiency levels rose to 41.2%, up from last year’s 40.5%.

According to Indiana Secretary of Education Katie Jenner, she believes teachers and students should be proud of their progress in recovering from the pandemic disruptions.
