INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WLFI) — Starting next school year, some Indiana students will take a new standardized test.

Instead of ISTEP, kids in grades three through eight will take ILEARN.

The Indiana State Teachers Association says this is the third time in 10 years that Indiana is switching up how it measures student proficiency.

Administrators say ISTEP was plagued with problems and not correctly implemented.

The American Institute for Research will create the new computer-based adaptive tests.

Those assessments will change the questions based on the student's performance.
