Thank you for supporting your student with Istation!
How does ISIP at Home work?
Istation has an adaptive curriculum that our K-5 Students will have access to this school year.
What are Istation’s assessments?
ISIP is computer-adaptive and reacts to each student’s answers, making it “adaptive” or personalized. If a student answers a question correctly, the next question will be more difficult. If a student answers a question incorrectly, the next question will be less difficult. This provides a clear picture of what each student knows and is ready to learn next.
It will take about 30-40 minutes to complete. Encourage them to do their best. It is expected that they may not know all the answers. Please do not help them answer questions during the assessment. Students cannot pass or fail this test; it is simply meant to help teachers make instructional decisions for your child.
The Istation BOY benchmark results will inform the adaptive curriculum as to where to start the students within the curriculum. It also serves as a data point for teachers to use when triangulating data to plan instruction and support.
Istation’s Indicators of Progress (ISIP™) Early Reading is a sophisticated, web-delivered computer-adaptive testing (CAT) system that provides continuous progress monitoring (CPM) by frequently assessing and reporting student ability in critical domains of reading throughout the academic year.
In WCPSS, K-3 students are required to take BOY (beginning of the year), MOY (middle of the year), and EOY (End of the Year) (ISIP ER) assessments on Istation.
