#TipsForSuccess March and April are when accountability assessments are given in Indiana. In March, the IREAD-3 assessment is given to measure the foundational reading skills of third graders. In April, students in grades 3-8, as well as high school biology students, will take the state’s ILEARN assessment which measures student achievement and growth according to Indiana Academic Standards. Testing Tips • Minimize your student’s screen time at home, especially before bed. • Ensure your student gets plenty of rest with a good night’s sleep. • Provide your student with a well-balanced, protein-rich breakfast. • Encourage your student to stay positive and to just do their best. Testing is important, but it is only one measurement of student success. Help your student stay calm and do his or her best on the test.
