Enacted by the North Carolina legislature, RtA is designed to ensure that all children in the state of North Carolina master the skills they need to become successful readers.

What are Istation’s assessments? Istation’s Indicators of Progress (ISIP™) Early Reading is a sophisticated, web-delivered computer-adaptive testing (CAT) system that provides continuous progress monitoring (CPM) by frequently assessing and reporting student ability in critical domains of reading throughout the academic year. Plus, K-3 teachers and students in North Carolina get access to ISIP Oral Reading Fluency assessment, which provides the opportunity for students to demonstrate their reading accuracy through the oral reading of text and the collection of a running record.
