Welcome to the Istation Blog
It’s important for educators to utilize assessment tools that identify their students’ skill strengths and weaknesses. Norm-referenced, digital tools allow educators to assess students regularly while decreasing the chance for biases to influence results.
On September 1, 2021, Istation will begin standardizing its newest assessment, ISIP Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) for K-3 students in English and Spanish. Leveraging recording technology, this digital assessment makes it possible to quickly and easily measure students’ processing speed, an important early indicator for reading difficulties such as dyslexia.
It’s important for educators to have choices when it comes to administering student assessments. Assessment customization options ensure you are screening for automaticity and readiness before instructional planning can take place.
Reliable technology tools are a must in your schools. Students deserve a streamlined learning experience when using the programs you have invested in. Teachers need an all-in-one tool that won’t lose their students’ data due to internet connection issues.
Educators are always looking for ways to engage their students in learning. They make their lessons meaningful by tapping into students’ interests or tying them back to what students already know. The best way to get students’ attention is by giving them more choice and agency over what they are learning.
Students placed into 6-8th grade reading content after taking ISIP™ Reading have access to both HumanEX and NexLevel, Istation’s middle school reading program. Our middle school reading content is designed to be inclusive with diverse characters and stories that are internationally and culturally sensitive. Read more about authentic learning for middle school students here.
The Student Summary Handout (SSH) has been enhanced and is now fully translated into Spanish (available when selected) for both ISIP™ Reading and ISIP Lectura. Key enhancements include:
The Istation Help Center has been updated with a new look and is organized for an improved user experience. Educators will see a fresh, clean design that offers a streamlined way to access articles on Istation reports, the assessment and instruction, teacher tools, website navigation, and more. Educators can search for a specific topic or browse topics by category.
