New Reading Test To Determine Who Moves To Fourth Grade

Last updated on Tuesday, February 28, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A new state reading test will determine which students will be allowed to move onto the fourth grade.

Lawmakers implemented a new law back in 2010 that tests third grade students' reading skills.

Students who fail will be given remediation and have a second opportunity to pass at the end of the summer. Students who fail a second time, will have to repeat the third grade.

Teachers will administer the test in March.
