INDIANAPOLIS (AP) New test results show the reading levels among Indiana's third graders made slight progress from last year.

The Indiana Department of Education released data Thursday from the spring 2014 IREAD 3 test showing about 85 percent of students passed the test.

The results are up three-tenths of a percentage point from 2013.

Passage rates have inched higher in the past three years from a little under 85 percent in 2012, when the first official test was administered.

Between the year of the pilot test in 2011 and 2012, passage rates jumped almost 5 percentage points.

State schools superintendent Glenda Ritz says the results are another sign of the work that's happening in schools every day.
