October 26, 2021 – Today Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is introducing the IAR Parent Portal, where parents/guardians can learn about their children’s performance on the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) for English language arts/literacy and mathematics.
The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) is the state assessment and accountability measure for Illinois students enrolled in a public school district. IAR assesses the New Illinois Learning Standards Incorporating the Common Core. IAR was administered in English language arts and mathematics to all students in grades 3-8 during spring of 2021.
The IAR Parent Portal User Guide has information on how to create an account, log in to the account, and use your claim code to access student score reports and video of Individual Student Reports (ISRs). The portal will also allow parents/guardians to track their student’s scores from year to year, beginning with the spring 2021 results. Spring 2021 performance information and a code to access the portal will be shared with parents during October 28 and 29 Parent Teacher Conferences.
In a statement regarding the IAR Portal, ISBE said, “Parental involvement and support play a significant role in student success. Likewise, their access to their child’s results can enhance the ability of parents/guardians to communicate with their child’s educators. The IAR Parent Portal offers parents/guardians direct access to assessment information.”
