ISASP Testing Information

ISASP TESTING CANCELLED

UPDATE 3/23/2020:  ISASP testing has been canceled for the 2019-2020 school year.

 

Starting after Spring Break, the district will be administering the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP). Developed by the Iowa Testing Programs Center at the University of Iowa, the assessment aligns with the Iowa Core standards to track student progress in a variety of subjects. Please see below for the testing schedule at our elementaries, junior high and high school.

For test security purposes, the state does not allow phones or any smart devices in the testing area. Students will be asked to secure cell phones and devices in their lockers. Phones and smart devices must be turned off during testing to reduce traffic on our network system. 

We encourage you to make sure your student attends school and gets adequate rest during the testing window.             

For more information on ISASP, please visit the official website at  http://iowa.pearsonaccessnext.com/  

If you have any questions regarding the ISASP assessment, please do not hesitate to contact your building principal.
