What is the Illinois Science Assessment?
On what standards is ISA based?
ISA is based on the Illinois Learning Standards in science incorporating the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The State Board adopted these standards in 2014. The Illinois Learning Standards in science incorporating the NGSS replaced the previous science standards that were adopted in 1997. See the Illinois State Board of Education.for more details.

What types of items will appear on the ISA?
Each test will begin with reading passages, called scenarios, and will be followed by a series of test items. Some items will be open-ended, some will be multiple-choice and some will be multiple-select (more than one correct response). Other items will involve dropdown selections. Each test will also include stand-alone, multiple-choice items that do not follow a scenario.

What NGSS science content is covered in each test?
Grades 5 and 8 will have items aligned to Physical Science (PS), Life Science (LS), Earth/Space Science (ESS) and Engineering (ETS).
