North Carolina has selected Istation as the state’s reading assessment beginning with the 2019-20 school year. Istation helps to identify students’ abilities in phonological and phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Wake County Public Schools will begin using this assessment for the middle of the year benchmarking period which occurs in December for year round schools and January for traditional calendar schools.
There is an Istation parent portal which provides 24-7 access to:
a personalized data profile of your child’s progress
supplemental learning materials and games for home use
**Please Note: Teachers will not have data available until after the testing windows below**
