Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

Dolton School District 149 students in grades 3-8 will take the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) test.  This test replaces PARCC and the ISAT assessments that our students have taken in previous years.  The students will be assessed in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.

 

The IAR Assessment will occur during March and April of 2019. Students in grades 3-8 will take the assessment during our designated testing window of March 11th – April 18th.   District 149 was assigned the computer version of the test by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) for students in grades 3-8 based upon our technology readiness.

 

The assessments are timed and the following chart explains the time allowed per test by grade level:
