More ILEARN Test Info

As promised, below is a link to more information released by the IDOE on Monday. Please make yourself aware of what is in here and continues to be shared with schools. The test is very different.

Also, all those administering the ILEARN and IREAD beginning this year will be required to take a test before they can administer it. Watch for more info on that once I have had a chance to review it.

Here is the link for the website and ILEARN info. Click Here.

Take Note

  • At our October 24th staff meeting beyond the normal meeting stuff we will need to conduct Human Traffiking training which consists of going through a slide show and signing in that you participated in the training. ALL teaching staff, please make an effort to be here for it

Luthed Website

I don't know how many of you know this exists or not. We have a Lutheran website that has a ton of great resources and they are all FREE! There is a monthly newsletter that is published that has some great classroom and school resources and information in it. I would encourage you to subscribe. At your convenience, go to and check it out.

ILEARN & IREAD website with resources for teachers.

ILEARN/IREAD Required Training Coming

School personnel planning to administer the ILEARN and/or IREAD-3 assessments this year must first complete the required Test Administrator Certification Course. This online training is approximately 30 minutes in length and will be posted to the Indiana Assessment Portal beginning October 1. Educators may complete the training any time up until the scheduled assessment window for which they will serve as a Test Administrator (TA).

Please let me know when you're done with it so I know all have done it.

Reminder: I need all to watch this and sign Test Security Agreement & turn in to me please ASAP
