The Indiana Department of Education this morning released the school-by-school breakdown of ISTEP scores for all students in grades 3 through 8 in the state.

The scores show that Duneland students fared better than the state average in each of the grades tested. Duneland’s results ranged from 73 percent of the students in grades 5, 7 and 8 passing both the English and math portions of the test to 83 percent of the third graders passing both components.

In addition to English and math, students in grades four and six were tested on science, while students in grades five and seven were tested on social studies.

Statewide, about 75 percent of students passed both the English and math tests, with about 74 percent of the students passing the English portion and 76 percent passing the math section. That’s better than last year’s scores, with about 70 percent of all students passing English and 71 percent passing math, according to the Associated Press.

Parents have been able to access their children’s individual scores for several weeks. This morning, the statewide results comparing school corporations and individual school results were released.

The results are available online at the DOE’s website at http://www.doe.in.gov/istep/2010
