The Indiana Department of Education has reported that 53.5% of the students who took the ISTEP standardized test last year passed both the language arts and mathematics portions. 74.7 percent of students passed both sections in 2014. Officials say the new scores cannot be compared to previous years' scores because testing has changed. Lawmakers have been considering removing any negative influences the test scores might have on school districts and teacher pay.

The following is the percentages from the Scott County Schools:

Austin Elementary School 50.6% passed English, 42.5% passed Math

Johnson Elementary School 60% passed English, 62.1% passed Math

Lexington Elementary School 87.1% passed English, 80.6% passed Math

Scottsburg Elementary School 63.4% passed English, 54.9% passed Math

Vienna-Finley Elementary School 75.5% passed English, 79.3% passed Math

Crothersville Elementary School 83.8% passed English, 94.4% passed Math
