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.

    I love this school my granddaughter started this year and her teacher i feel is one of the best

    My daughter has attended this school K-5. She had one questionable teacher the entire time we had her there. The principle Is wonderful and very committed to the children. The activities are better then most other schools. I know because my older two children had trouble in different schools with teachers principles and other children. To the extent of a knife pulled on one of them in the middle school at Filer. Plus Bickel has an advanced class right at the school so my daughter didn't have to transfer to another school for a higher learning level and she wasn't made to feel different for her advances levels. Bickel Elementary has proven to be one of the best schools in Twin Falls District for my child

    We've had two children attend this school. The teachers are devoted kind and helpful. Although the building is old and in need of some modernization the great learning environment makes up for it.

    Both of my children attended this school from Kindergarten to 6th grade. Not only great academic teaching but also great effort put into teaching children social skills and how to treat each other.
