Students in Indiana are currently taking the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress (ISTEP), tests designed to measure instructors’ teaching abilities as well as students’ academic progress. And although the ISTEP doesn’t affect students’ actual grades, it can still be a less-than-fun experience.
