Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress Reports
In the spring of last school year, students in grades 3 through 11 completed the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP). During the week of November 11, your student will be bringing home an individual student report with his/her scores in each assessed subject.
This assessment is aligned with the Iowa Core Standards and is the new state assessment that replaced the former Iowa Assessment. ISASP better reflects what’s being taught in Iowa classrooms and how students are progressing toward grade-level expectations outlined in Iowa’s academic standards. Because the new state test is more aligned to Iowa’s academic standards, it is more challenging. These results will re-set the baseline for future progress on the new state test. They should not be compared to results from previous years because the state test is new and different.
Students in grades 3 through 11 were assessed in English Language Arts and Mathematics, and students in grades 5, 8, and 10 were also assessed in Science. The data from this assessment provide clear and accurate measures of student learning outcomes that are relevant and actionable for students, parents, educators, and the state.
