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.

    My son attends Pre-Kindergarten at Franklin Park. His teacher is Debbie Suarez. I have tried to be as involved as possible with my son's education. Ms. Suarez has always been quick to respond to my questions and concerns. She has always kept me involved with my son's class. The class sizes are small. There are only about 9 kids in the class and there are a few teacher's aids giving a ratio of about 3 students per adult.

    Our kids are being taught to take and pass tests ONLY. They aren't being taught math as all the children are on different levels and the teacher can't spend enough time with each student. There is no retention in this. The accelerated reading program as taken all the joy from reading our children ever had.
