5 Important things families should know about ILEARN

Información para Familias sobre la Evaluación ILEARN

ILEARN assesses students in Grades 3-8 and High School Biology. ILEARN contributes to annual accountability measures.

ILEARN assesses achievement of Indiana Academic Standards for the following grades and subject areas:

  • English/Language Arts (Grades 3-8)
  • Mathematics (Grades 3-8)
  • Science (Grades 4, 6, and High School)
  • Social Studies (Grade 5)

You can view Released Items, or sample tests, for each of these content areas and grade levels on Indiana’s Released Items Repository.

 
The 2018-2019 assessment window is April 22 – May 17, 2019

ILEARN is a computer-adaptive test for Mathematics and English/Language Arts. Computer-adaptive assessments adjust the test questions that students see based on their performance. This adaptation allows each student to receive an individualized assessment that provides more precise data about student achievement. To learn more about computer-adaptive tests, visit our Assessment Literacy page.

For Science and Social Studies, ILEARN is an online fixed form assessment. This means that all students within a grade level will receive the same test questions when taking these assessments.   

The primary test mode is online.  Paper, Large Print, and Braille materials will only be available for students as an accommodation.

The American Institutes for Research, or AIR, will provide student proficiency information by August 15, 2019 for the 2018-2019 school year. This is a later date than data will be provided in the future as Standard Setting (determining cut scores) must occur over the summer. More information on obtaining test results will be provided as we near the testing window.

The Released Items Repository provides sample tests for all grade levels and content areas. Students can practice answering questions and using the different tools that are available.

For additional resources that describe the assessment (including our test blueprints and item specifications), visit our Test Design webpage.
