2022 Statewide Assessment  @ DMPS: April 13-29

Between April 1329, DMPS students in grades 3-11 will take the Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP). The assessment is required of all public schools in the state of Iowa to meet the requirements of the federally mandated Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).

More information about your student’s specific testing and survey schedule will come from their home school.

The ISASP assessments are aligned with the Iowa Core Standards and provide an assessment of student learning outcomes. Student growth, proficiency, and readiness indicators are reported in English/language arts, reading, math, and science. (NOTE: Science is only taken by students in grades 5, 8, and 10.)

Throughout the year, students at DMPS engage in lessons that help them develop the skills, knowledge, and abilities outlined in the Iowa Core Standards. This work prepares them to take assessments such as the ISASP.

One way you can help your student prepare is by having them attempt practice problems. Click the Test Preparation link to view the sample tests in each of the subject areas. These practice tests not only help with the content of the assessments, but also the operation of the online testing platform.

More information about your student’s assessment schedule will be provided by their school. When results become available, your student’s scores will be posted in Infinite Campus and can be viewed through your parent portal account. You will also be provided with an access code and a test results link to view more detailed information about your student’s results from Pearson, the vendor for ISASP.
