Latest Student Assessment Results Released
The new Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) is aligned with the Iowa Core Academic Standards. It replaced the Iowa Assessments.
Students in grades 3 through 11 took the new test in the spring of 2019.
The tests provide a clear and accurate assessment of learning. They are designed to ensure that all students move from grade to grade with the skills necessary for success beyond high school.
The Individual Student Report provides information that is relevant for students, parents, educators, and the state.
The report examines how each student performed on the subject tests of the ISASP. The areas of study include english, mathematics, and science.
The results are broken down and presented with the following:
-Scale score for the subject test
-Performance graphic of the scale score
-Student’s achievement level based on the scale score
-Description of performance which provides more information on how well a student understands the subject content.
Please remember to avoid comparing these results with those of previous years. Those tests measured different areas of student knowledge.
Parents, as you do review the ISASP results, take time to discuss them with your student. Ask questions and get feedback on their academic areas of strength, what additional supports they think will help, and what engages them in the classroom.
Feel free to share this feedback with your child’s teachers.
On a district level, Linn-Mar exceeds the state average in achievement and proficiency for all classes tested, grades three through eleven. The ISASP results will be continually assessed to help all students meet their greatest growth potential.
