INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A revamped formula for grading Indiana's schools goes before the State Board of Education on Friday as education leaders try to decide again on the best way to rate them. The formula approved Thursday by a bipartisan panel would grade schools on a 100-point scale based in part on how their students perform on standardized tests year-to-year. It also would expand testing to first and second grades.
