What is the ISAT?

Each year, students in grades 3-8 and once in high school take the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to determine whether they have achieved the standards for their grade level and subject area. There are tests for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics. The ISAT summative assessment is administered during the last 8 weeks of the school. It consists of two parts: a computer-adaptive test and performance tasks that are given on the computer.

Where and when are results available to parents?

New ISAT Assessment Resources Webpage Available for Parents

Idaho parents can learn more about state tests and their child’s performance using a new interactive website available from the Idaho State Department of Education. The SDE, working with the state’s testing company, developed new reports for parents and a new website for parents to dig deeper into what their child’s results mean. The new resource webpage is available at http://testscoreguide.org/id/. Questions about this new resource may be directed to Karlynn Laraway at This email address is being protected from spambots.
