Immediate, Reliable, Computer-Adaptive Assessments

ISIP™ Español

Designed as a Continuous Progress Monitor (CPM) of early Spanish reading and language development, Istation's ISIP Español assessment can be used throughout the school year to monitor students' progress in all Spanish reading areas.

In just 30 minutes, the computer-adaptive assessment can measure an entire class in critical Spanish reading skills listed below.

Thanks to ISIP™, Istation's Indicators of Progress, the short tests dynamically adjust to every child's individual ability in the five domains — from struggling to advanced — based on each successive response. Like all Istation assessments, ISIP Español (and Istation's three tiers of instruction) aligns with RTI risk level categories.

It's Multinational

Assistance from several Spanish-speaking scholars was used to develop the foundation and blueprint of ISIP Español — and the result is an unsurpassed, globally accurate assessment, with skills aligned to US Spanish Language Arts Standards, as well as the language standards and educational curriculum of Spain, Colombia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and other Spanish-speaking countries.

As a result, ISIP Español can be used effectively in conjunction with a variety of language program models, including:

  • Transitional Bilingual Education – Early Exit
  • Maintenance Bilingual Education – Late Exit
  • One-Way Spanish Immersion
  • One-Way Dual Language Spanish Immersion
  • Two-Way Dual Language Spanish Immersion
  • Spanish as a Second Language
  • Migrant Education and Newcomer Programs

It's Age Appropriate

ISIP Español blends age-appropriate content with rich, lively animations, game-like interactions, and fun characters that draw kids in, engage their interest, and motivate them to participate.

It's Accurate — and Complete

ISIP automatic scoring takes the risk of human error out of the assessment equation. Plus, it goes on to immediately identify the individual learning needs for each student in each critical area and places students in their appropriate curriculum tier, with customized content for each domain. This not only enhances individual student learning but also streamlines the grouping of students in need of additional small-group or one-on-one instruction. With Istation, teachers also have access to hundreds of resources, including directed lessons, complete bibliographies for each lesson, online interactive books, a teacher's manual, a user's guide, and technical support.

No other system provides all this!

It's Fast

Student scores are generated instantly. Comprehensive, customizable reports are immediately available. (And time not spent on manual grading, score analysis, instruction differentiation, and multiple testing leaves teachers with more time to focus on what's really important: teaching!) Unlike other systems that assess only twice per year, the ISIP Español assessment is conducted automatically each month (or on demand, as desired) to measure progress over time for each student, class, school, or district.
