GET READY FOR STATE TESTING:
ILEARN (grades 3-8) April 19- May 14
ILEARN is the State of Indiana’s standardized assessment that measures student achievement and growth according to Indiana Academic Standards for grades 3 – 8. The assessments will be the weeks of April 19 – May 14.  Your child’s teacher will let you know the days/dates your child will be testing. Attendance during these days is very important. Please make every attempt to schedule doctor and dentist appointments around the test dates. 
Here are just a few tips for a good testing day:
  • Make sure students get a good night’s sleep. This is important every night!!!!
  • A good morning at home makes for a good morning at school.
  • Make sure your children eat a good healthy breakfast.
  • Talk to your children about the test. Remind them to give their best effort. This test is important, but too much stress can be a problem also.
  • Encourage your child to listen to the teacher for directions.
  • Encourage your child to think positively – they can do this!!!!
  • Smile and tell a funny joke – laughing is good for everyone.

IREAD3 (3rd Grade) March 8 - March 12:
The Indiana Reading Evaluation and Determination (IREAD-3) assessment measures foundational reading standards to grade 3 students each spring. Based on the Indiana Academic Standards, IREAD-3 is a summative assessment that was developed in accordance with House Enrolled Act 1367. This assessment will be administered March 8 – March 12. Your child’ teacher will let you know the times your child will be testing. Attendance during these days is very important. Please make every attempt to schedule doctor and dentist appointments around these test dates.
