    What is Istation's ISIP Assessment?

    Istation’s Indicators of Progress (ISIP) online automated assessment and screener uses risk factors based on patterns of strengths and weaknesses to pinpoint reading difficulties such as dyslexia. 

    ISIP assessments are automatically assigned to students on a monthly basis providing educators with the necessary data to inform instruction around student learning needs.

    How ISIP Works

    ISIP monthly assessments are given the first time a student logs on during a calendar month and can be used as benchmarks and continuous progress monitoring to provide intervention at the right time.

    Our main screener takes about 30 minutes to assess and is available for students in prekindergarten through eighth grade.


    ISIP Scoring

    ISIP assessments use a measurement scale that aligns student performance levels with test question difficulties. Once ISIP determines the difficulty level at which the student is able to perform, the test ends and the student is assigned an overall reading ability index.

    ISIP test questions are based on student performance, not age or grade. For example, a first grader who received a score of 215 and a third grader who received 215 are performing at the same level.

    Educators can use the ability index to inform instruction according to their students' strengths and areas for improvement. Evidence shows targeted instruction and intervention leads to better performance and maximum growth.
