IStation Tip of the Week:

The "Assessment Completion" Report shows which students have competed the assessment for the reporting period. This will help you make any scheduling adjustments if needed during Progress Monitoring.

You will be prompted to log into the Aesop System. You will receive a reminder email in December if you have not logged into the system. The system will go LIVE on January 4th.
