Notice: Starting June 2022, Google will no longer support the underlying technology used in our Chrome app.

Istation will continue to support the current Chromebook app through the 2021-2022 school year, after which all Chromebook users will transition to Istation in the browser.

Istation in the Browser: Istation is releasing a web-based version of the student experience in July 2021. The initial launch will only be available in the Chrome browser on Chromebooks. Instead of opening an app, Chromebook users will access Istation assessments and instruction through a simple URL.

We will expand support to additional browsers and operating systems over the 2021-2022 school year. You can learn more about features, benefits, release dates, and technical requirements on the Istation in the Browser page.
