Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT)

In 2013-2014 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard. In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

    Being a small school all the teachers and support staff know everyone.

    The students at Big Rock Elementary get a quality education. This school has different opportunities for different students such as multiage classrooms which I believe should become the standard. Not everybody in the second grade is necessarily ready for 2nd grade and some maybe ready for more. With a multi-age classroom the teacher is better prepared for all situations.
