Indiana Is Working On New Standards For State Math Test

It could be a big step toward National Educational Standards.

Indiana is one of nine states working together to develop a common high school math test.

Right now, state standards, and tests based on them, vary wildly for subjects like math, English, and science.

So the states decided to share a test and standards for algebra two.

They say a subject like that should not vary across state lines.

Research has shown that students who complete algebra two are much more likely to go on to earn a college degree.
