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. Please set up your account (email you received) so we can take the certification test ASAP.

We'll dedicate a meeting to this, probably after Christmas at this point.

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

Take Note

  • Please note I need to move Nov 7th meeting to Nov 14th. I'm serving on an accreditation visiting team for Bethlehem Ossian Nov 7-9.

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.
