Parent & Student Information for Statewide Academic Testing

Parent information

Students in grades 9-12 will be taking the state required Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) from April 8 to April 12.  Our schools performance on these tests are made public and are used by the state to determine if the students are learning what they are supposed to be learning.  It can also be used by the staff to guide what needs to be focused on in class.  For these reasons this test is very important and we ask for parents help in preparing students to perform their best.  Please follow the tips below to encourage your child.

Tips for helping your child be prepared for successful ISASP testing

  • Show an interest in your child’s testing by wishing them luck on their ISASP every day they have one
  • Provide them an adequate breakfast on the testing days
  • Make sure students go to bed early enough to obtain an adequate amount of sleep
  • Make sure students arrive to school on time
  • Ask them how their tests went at the end of the day and give them encouraging advice.
