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.

    I have two children who currently attend Ellington school. Ellington is a great school they have a great staff and are very helpful. Ellington's staff assist the children in every way possible. The hard work and long hours the teachers put in (on their own time weekends) makes me appreciate them all very much. My children like going to Ellington and I couldn't think of a better school for them. Ellington was a great school when I went there and continues to be a great school for my children. THANKS Ellington Staff for all your time and dedication!
