2014-2015 IELA Training

Questar Assessment, Inc. is getting ready for the upcoming administration of the spring 2015 Idaho English Language Assessment (IELA). They are currently in the process of printing your Pre-ID barcode labels for the students that were identified in ServicePoint and will soon turn our attention to packaging the test materials which will ship from our warehouse on February 2, 2015. Similar to previous years, Questar and the Idaho State Department of Education have prepared PowerPoint presentations to help you better understand the details associated with the test. The PowerPoint(s) are now available for download at ServicePoint ( or you can access them below. Specifically, you will find a training presentation for new Test Coordinators that have never administered the IELA before, a training presentation for Veteran Test Coordinators that are familiar with the test and as a result only need a refresher, and a Post-Test presentation for everyone to help assist in the packaging and return of materials to Questar.
