August, 2018

Effective for the 2018-2019 year, the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) developed by Iowa Testing Programs will replace the Iowa Assessments for the state’s accountability measure. Available in the spring of 2019, the ISASP will require students in grades 3 to 11 to complete assessments in reading, language, writing and mathematics. It will also require students in grades 5, 8 and 10 to complete a science assessment. More information will be available on the ISASP in the upcoming weeks.

August, 2018

Though not to be used for accountability, the Iowa Assessments will continue to be offered for schools in the state of Iowa during the 2018-2019 year. The Iowa Assessments provide accurate information on student achievement, growth, college readiness, and comparisons to the nation. The Iowa Assessments will be offered as both online and paper/pencil assessments for students in kindergarten through Grade 12 and are available from September through June.
