IREAD-3 Results Show HSE Students Meeting Benchmarks

August 12, 2022

The results from the 2021-2022 Indiana Reading Evaluation and Determination (IREAD-3) assessment ranks Hamilton Southeastern as one of the highest-performing public schools.

The IREAD-3 assessment was given to 1,545 third grade students across the district’s 13 elementary schools. According to the results released on Wednesday by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE), 94% of HSE students have mastered foundational reading skills by the end of third grade.

“As we continue to make strides in core academic subjects, it is important to remember our students are more than a test score,” said Superintendent Dr. Yvonne Stokes. “Our teachers and staff work diligently every day to ensure our students are well-rounded, innovative thinkers capable of meeting the demands of an ever-changing world community.”

Hamilton Southeastern Schools’ IREAD-3 scores ranked second in the state among districts in the top 10% in enrollment and was the highest scoring in Hamilton County.

Reading proficiency is a key indicator of a student’s future academic success. Hamilton Southeastern will use the information from the assessment in helping guide teachers on instructional methods that meet the needs of all students.

“In order to continue to achieve the highest results, we must continue to work together as a school community,” added Stokes.

Students in seven of the district’s 13 elementary schools scored 95% or higher – demonstrating proficient reading skills.
