The Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) tests are coming up and it is important for your student/students to come rested and ready so we can accurately monitor their learning and assist them in being future ready. These required assessments occur one time a year and provide data that shows student progress and comparison data.
ISASP is aligned with the Iowa Core learning standards and provides a clear and accurate assessment of student learning outcomes. Student growth, proficiency, and readiness indicators will be reported.
- All Iowa students in grades 3-11 are required to participate in ISASP.
- Iowa’s preferred mode of testing is in-person.
- Students in grades K-2 and seniors DO NOT take the ISASP.
In order to meet state requirements, remote students in grades 3-11 will need to come to their resident school for ISASP testing during our designated testing window. This will include certain grade levels per week and testing windows that are partial days in length. More information on the details of the testing dates and times was shared out from building principals the week of March 29. Testing will occur by grade level between the dates of April 19-May 14.
All health and safety requirements will be in place on bus routes and in buildings during testing. Students will need to stay for the entire scheduled testing session. Students must bring their school-issued device and power cord for testing.
We are looking forward to seeing all of our students and also looking forward to the results of all of their hard work over the course of the year. Please be looking for additional information and thank you for partnering with us on this important, required Iowa assessment.
