ISAT Mathematics
Announcement: Important Test Information
The ISAT Science, EndofCourse and Alternate Assessments (for ELA and Math) will be administered by AIR beginning Spring 2017 Test Administration.
Additional updates and resource manuals will be posted on the AIR portal as they become available.
The ISAT Mathematics test is required in grades 38 and 10. The items directly align to the Idaho Content Standards. The items require a student to know mathematics and be able to perform mathematical problems at varying degrees of difficulty as they correlate to the standards. Claim 1 assesses the content standards. Claims 2, 3, and 4 assess the Mathematical Practice Standards, which describe how students go about doing math.
