DALLAS – March 25, 2022 – Istation, a leader in educational technology, gained approval from the Nebraska Department of Education for the 2022-2023 school year for its kindergarten through 3rd grade ISIP reading assessments. The Nebraska Reading Improvement Act, which requires each district to select an approved reading assessment screener, prompted this selection. The district chose Istation’s supplemental adaptive programs based on multiple criteria such as evidence of effectiveness, alignment with state standards, and personalized learning for each student.
Powered by the science of reading, Istation’s reading assessments and instructional resources for pre-K through eighth grade cover the National Reading Panel’s “Big Five” foundational essentials: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. Schools get the support they need to improve foundational reading and growth with assessments that provide actionable and insightful data that measure these skills and many others.
Students take a computer-adaptive assessment, known as Istation’s Indicators of Progress (ISIP™), which measures overall proficiency and abilities. Istation uses student progress and assessment data to create personalized data profiles with relevant information on students’ progress. These instantaneous and customizable reports include both graphical and contextual analyses for each student. Teachers can use this data to plan and differentiate instruction, provide necessary interventions and discover students who may be at risk for learning disabilities.
