|GreatSchools Ratings for Indiana|
In calculating these ratings, GreatSchools analyzed the 2010-2011 Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) and End-of-Course (ECA) results for the school and compared them to the test results for all Indiana schools with the same grade levels.
If there are no GreatSchools Ratings for a school, the school's test results were either not reported or incomplete. The different student groups are identified by the Indiana Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report test results for that group.
Keep in mind that when comparing schools using GreatSchools Ratings, it's important to factor in other information, including the quality of each school's teachers, the school culture, special programs, etc.
GreatSchools Ratings cannot be compared across states, because of differences in the states' standardized testing programs.
