Test Scores by grade


Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT)

Until 2012-2013, Idaho used the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math, and language usage, and in grades 5, 7, and 10 in science. In 2013-2014, Idaho field-tested a new ISAT, and only reported testing for grades 5, 7, and 10 science, and grade 10 reading, language use, and mathematics. Data was also heavily suppressed to protect individual students from being identified. Students may also take the ISAT in grades 11 or 12 if they were not able to do so in grade 10. The scores from the spring administration are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The grade 10 ISAT is a high school graduation requirement. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering the specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Idaho. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
