  • ISTEP+ Summer 2019 Retest scores are now available. IDOE identified a proficiency level naming issue associated with results reported as “Undetermined”. These results are currently showing as “N/A” rather than “UND” in the Online Reporting System (ORS). IDOE worked with AIR to continue to maintain deployment to serve all students as needed based on their assessment outcomes. IDOE will notify corporations via listserv once the update has occurred, no later than Wednesday, October 16 to reflect reports for corporations, schools and parents as UND. No other proficiency levels or data points are impacted by this naming issue.
