DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Statistical standards for program evaluation. Allows the department of education to use target ISTEP scores or improvement rates as criteria in evaluating the performance of school corporations and schools for programs that provide funding. Provides that a school corporation or school may not be denied funding based on the failure of the school corporation or school to meet a target unless the department can demonstrate that the margin by which the school corporation or school failed to meet the target falls outside the margin of normal random statistical variation from the target.
