time to play . . . Show What You Know!” A curtain pulls back to show the first game, Alex quickly announces the
game, and the assessment begins. At the end of the assessment, students see an animated graph of their progress.

ISIP™ Lectura Temprana


Young learners’ Spanish literacy skills are assessed in less than 30 minutes through engaging activities with
Latin literature and culture, which were designed by Spanish language educators. The computer-adaptive
assessment features a game show called A ver cuánto sabes (Show What You Know). An animated bird named
Guillermo enters the screen as the game show announcer and invites students to participate by saying,
“¡Bienvenidos! En este juego vas a demostrar que ¡si puedes!” (“It’s time to show that you can do it!”). He
helps students understand the rules of the game, and then the assessment begins. At the end of each
assessment, students see an animated graph of their progress.

ISIP™ Lectura Avanzada


Older students’ Spanish literacy skills are assessed in less than 30 minutes with engaging activities with
Latin literature and culture, which were designed by Spanish language educators. The computer-adaptive
assessment features a space game called Academia Lecto-cibernética. Students are introduced to an animated
commander named Commander Apollo, who enters the screen and announces, “¡Bienvenidos a la Academia
Lecto-cibernética! Estamos buscando cadetes con excelentes habilidades en lectura y ortografía. Te
embarcarás en una serie de misiones para demostrar tus habilidades.” Lieutenant Leonor then guides them
through their missions. Once Leonor explains the missions, students begin their assessment.

Pre-K – 1st Grade

ISIP™ Early Math


Early learners are assessed in less than 30 minutes with an engaging computer-adaptive assessment that
features shopping in a grocery store called Mario’s Market. At the beginning of the session, Mario welcomes
students before the assessment begins. Assessment delivery is presented in a developmentally appropriate
format with respect to students’ reading skills, fine/gross motor skills, and hand-eye coordination.
Consideration of young students’ fine motor skills informs navigation design and assessment interfaces that
allow as much hands-on/manipulative-based interaction as possible. The singular interface theme of Mario’s
Market minimizes distractions and unnecessary cognitive load.

Measuring skills needed for mathematical proficiency, ISIP Math assesses four levels
of cognitive engagement.

ISIP™ Math
Students are assessed in less than 30 minutes with an engaging computer-adaptive assessment that begins
with an introduction from The Chief who briefly explains that the mathematical knowledge demonstrated
during this assessment will help students become secret agents. He says that once the assessment is
complete, students will participate in math missions with Donnie, Stix, and Angel to defeat villains and save
the world, motivating students to do their best when taking the assessment.

Serving Special Communities with Istation

Istation Testing Accommodations


The Istation program is designed to help all students reach their full potential. We serve students
of all needs to help them achieve literacy and related skills through a highly engaging and
fully adaptive approach.

ISIP Assessment Accommodations for Special Needs


Several functions of Istation serve as modifications and/or accommodations for special needs students that typify the universal
design of Istation:

Devices:
Touch Screen Overlay: This USB touch screen can be applied to monitors. It acts like a standard pointing device. Istation is known
to work well with touch screen overlays. Even a student using a head stylus can use this device.

ZoomText Software: This software allows the user to zoom in to a very low screen resolution (so things look bigger) with
automatic scrolling of the screen when the mouse is moved. This is extremely helpful for the visually impaired.

Adaptive Keyboard, Mouse, and Trackball: ISIP™ assessments work well with most adaptive desktop computer equipment,
such as keyboards, mice, and trackballs.

Interactive Whiteboards: All students can take the assessment by using an interactive whiteboard to touch the answer. This is
a helpful accommodation for students with limited fine motor skills.

Embedded Accommodations:
Computer-Adaptive Testing: ISIP is a computer-adaptive assessment that quickly adapts to each individual student response.
A student will be given test questions within his or her ability range, regardless of age or grade. If a student is guessing and/or randomly
clicking in the assessment as opposed to showing effort, the program will alert the teacher through a performance report.

Review of Directions: ISIP assessments have an embedded review of test directions within the assessment and between subtests.
A test monitor or teacher can also review directions with the student orally by pausing the assessment between subtests.

Verbal and Visual Cues: ISIP assessments have embedded verbal and visual cues to aid students in staying on task.

On-Demand Assessments: ISIP assessments can be given in addition to the automatic monthly assessment for more frequent
progress monitoring or to validate results.

Providing Directions:
Written directions: Teachers can provide written direction prior to each assessment or subtest. The teacher will need to prepare
this prior to the testing session.

Preview of test procedures: Teachers may use their teacher accounts to login and review or preview testing procedures with
students prior to taking the assessment.

Time Accommodations:
Breaks: Students can take breaks between assessment subtests by pausing the program.

Sessions: The testing session can be broken up over several smaller sessions or over a few days.
