​This Illinois Science Assessment (ISA) page will be updated as information becomes available. The ISA is not  an alternate assessment. Students who participate in the DLM-AA alternate assessment will be assessed in science in grades 5, 8, and 11.

In compliance with federal testing requirements, Illinois will administer a science assessment to students enrolled in a public school district in grades 5, 8 and once at the high school level. The high school assessment utilizes a course-based model with content aligned to Biology I. The assessment will be administered in an online format and is aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards for Science incorporating the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which were adopted in 2014.
