  • The Remote ELA/Literacy, Mathematics, and Science ISATs online summative test window opens today, Monday, April 12.

    For additional details on the remote test administration, please consult the 2020-2021 Online Summative Test Administration Manual (TAM)

    Test Administrators (proctors) may access these remote online summative tests by selecting the Test Administration card on the ELA/Literacy & Math AssessmentsScience Assessments pages. Students will take these remote online summative tests in the Idaho Secure Browser, or using a conventional browser (as a last resort).

    Remote online summative ELA/Literacy and Mathematics ISAT student scores will be available in Reporting. Scores will begin flowing into Reporting within 10 days of submission of these remote tests. As a reminder, scores will not be available this school year for Science ISATs or any IDAA tests.

    Districts are encouraged to test all students in-person. If remote testing is required, districts must contact SDE if their application was not submitted by the deadline of March 1.

  • The Paper Test Window is now open. The Data Entry Interface (DEI) System is now available in the ELA/Literacy & Math Assessments and the Idaho Alternate Assessments pages. Once a student completes a paper-pencil ISAT, the proctor will need to transcribe student responses in the Data Entry Interface (DEI). For qualifying students who take the IDAA Fixed-Form with Printed Response Option Cards (the “paper” version of the IDAA), the proctor will serve as a scribe and enter student responses in the secure test browser.  The DEI user guide is also available in the resources section under the Trainings and System Guides – Resources for Test Administration sub-folder.
