Educators and families went to incredible lengths to keep students on track throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The next few years will be critically important to helping students reach their fullest potential.

The Illinois State Board of Education is providing school districts with three free interim assessments during the 2021-22 school year — one in the fall, one in the winter, and the final one in the spring — to ensure teachers and families have the tools and information they need to support each student’s growth. Interim assessments do not factor into a child’s grades, class placement, or academic standing. They do not impact accountability or teacher evaluations.

These assessments allow teachers to pinpoint knowledge gaps and immediately adjust instruction and support to match students’ needs.​
