2011 ISAT & IAA Preliminary Scores Posted

Grades 3-8 and 11 ISAT and IAA scores for the 2011 school year are now posted in IWAS, and located within the Student Information System (SIS). If you are receiving this email, it is because you have students in grades 3-8 or 11 on your Assessment Correction file. Please immediately review your data for any errors or omissions. Assessment Correction will close on June 17, 2011 at 4:00 P.M. There will be no extensions.

Checking your Data:
Please examine both Summary and Detail Assessment Score Reports for errors and missing students.

Assessment Score Summary Report:
Check the total students tested and compare to the count of students you know took the test in your school or district. A student that tested in your district needs to be on your assessment file in order for their scores to be posted. Many students are not matched to a district because they are added to the district's assessment file. Once you have added missing students to your report, contact the Help Desk to have their scores moved to your district.

Assessment Score Detail Report:
If a student has no score, is not included on your Unassigned Test Results report, and you know they tested, contact the SIS help desk at 217-558-3600 so ISBE can find the score.

If a student did NOT test in your district, please provide the reason code in your assessment file or use the online Assessment Correction functionality in SIS. Contact the SIS help desk for any additional assistance.
