ILEARN, YOU LEARN
INFO, TIPS, AND TRICKS FOR THE NEW ILEARN ASSESSMENT
BOOKMARK THIS SITE NOW! (Seriously- right now) :-)
If you are in an ILEARN-tested grade level, you should be looking at this site at least weekly, if not daily! Once you know the standards you are teaching during your lesson, please go to this site to see the information provided for that standard as it related to ILEARN.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Is what I am teaching within the content limits that it will be tested? (Am I accidentally teaching this standard above or below grade level?)
- Am I teaching AND assessing this standard at the appropriate DOK level?
- If the specs contain vocabulary, am I confident ALL students can define the vocabulary words and use them appropriately after my lesson?
- Do the questions on my assessment look like the example questions in the spec list? If there is an example which contains easier and harder context questions, have I covered them both?
- Can I incorporate the types of test questions listed with my students during this lesson during classwork and assessments? (Do you know what the term "hot text" means? Do you know what an "edit task inline" question would look like? Not sure? See the information on question types below!!)

Here is a list of the types of questions your students will see on the ILEARN assessment. We don't want the question mechanics to get in the way of students answering questions correctly. Please go over these question types with your students and include them in your assessments regularly whenever possible!
