ISTEP Testing at Cornerstone Baptist Academy

As a result of entering the School Choice program, CBC will be administering the ISTEP tests this spring.  There are actually four assessments that make up ISTEP.

The first will be the ISTEP+ Applied Skills assessment.  This is given to students in grades 3 - 8.  The testing dates are March 3rd - 12th. 
The second assessment will be IREAD-3. This is given to 3rd grade between March 17th - 21st.

The third part is the ISTEP+ Multiple-Choice assessment.  It again is for grades 3-8 and will be administered between April 28th and May 7th.

The final section is the ISTEP+ End of Course Assessments (ECAs).  These are administered to students completing Algebra I, English 10, and Biology.

Assessments begin early in the day.  It is important to have your child in attendance on time.  The scheduled days are mandated by the state and make up times are limited.  The tests are spread over two to three days.  No more than two tests are given on any one day.  The specific schedule for the assessments will be sent out the week before the tests.

Thanks for making sure your child is in attendance, well rested, and having had a good breakfast.  All these things are important to be successful when testing.  You will be made aware of testing results when they become available.
