We're so excited! Istation has been awarded a statewide contract with the New Mexico Public Education Department. Both our English and Spanish formative assessments — known as ISIP™ — will be made available at no cost to New Mexico districts and charter-school students in kindergarten through third grade!
Istation’s ISIP has been cited by the New Mexico Public Education Department as having several advantages. ISIP provides reliable data with frequent, age-appropriate measurement for students and adjusts to each student’s reading ability. Plus, our interactive assessment keeps developing readers engaged and provides educators with the data they need to help students grow. In addition, less time is taken away from instruction for students, since teachers do not administer the assessment individually. An entire class can be assessed in all measures in 30–40 minutes in a computer lab setting. Individually, the subtests range from approximately three to 10 minutes. Instant scoring results and a wealth of reports are available, including Lexile scores. Over 2,500 teacher-directed lesson plans are available to support teachers with targeted instruction.
“We are honored to be chosen as a partner with New Mexico public schools. Students and teachers across New Mexico will now have access to technology that can assist teachers and help all students enhance their reading proficiency,” said Istation Chairman and CEO Richard H. Collins.
