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.

    This school is lacking in computer skills for there students. The majority of the students can't read. You don't really have programs for students who are doing well they are not being challenged. My child has had only 2 computer classes all year. The teachers are not computer literate and spend most of there time with disciplines issues..

    Carol Moseley Braun values its teachers students and parents. The principal leadership and administrative staff are excellent. The school is always clean on the inside and well maintained on the outside. My daughter has attended this school since the 1st grade she is now in 4th grade. Unfortunately the school only goes up to the 5th grade but we have one more great year to look forward to! Keep up the good work CMB!

    My daughter and I both love this school. My baby is now going to the second grade and she can't wait for school to begin. Because of her excitement her little sister can't wait to go to her school as well. Ms. Hayes is a wonderful principal I personally wish this school continued to the 8th grade. I will have to find a school that's as wonderful as carol Moseley Braun....which happens to a relative.

    I read the commment about this school having 'bad' teachers. This is farthest from the truth!!!! I can't believe this statement! Just look at their isat scores! May not be the best but they are improving. They have wonderful teachers Ms. Wilson Ms. Nawracaji Ms. Odaniel Ms. Lewis Ms. Ojermark Ms. Kasal Ms. Lipsey Ms. Greaves Mr. Morton Mrs. Westmoreland Ms. Myles Mr. Gardner Ms. Ivy Ms. Scott and Ms. Quinn! Just ask the students! They have the best principle...Ms. Hayes!
