Illinois Alternate Assessment for students with disabilities.
This graph displays IAA performance levels, for students in the state, over a 3-year period. To customize the data view click the Select Options button. Use the drop down menus to choose the length of time and type of data you wish to view. Once the selections have been made, click the green Apply button. The View Details check box adds the data in chart format, for the default screen only. Mousing over any item in the color coded key beneath the graph, will change the display to only that single performance level.
When a subgroup has fewer than 10 students, the comparison data is not shown. This is done to protect student privacy.
This displays 2013-2014 data. PARCC assessment information for 2014-2015 will be posted as soon as it becomes available. To learn more about PARCC, visit parcconline.org.
The Illinois Alternate Assessment (IAA) is the yardstick the state uses to measure the learning of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. The four performance levels are different than those displayed with the ISAT or PSAE data. The IAA performance levels are Mastery (blue), Satisfactory (green), Foundational (yellow), and Entry (red).
The use of long term (or longitudinal data) to improve educational decision making is a national priority. This data allows educators and researchers to understand the link between various educational strategies and student performance. Districts generally use longitudinal data as part of school improvement planning. The most common strategies for using data are professional development activities, providing support positions for system implementation, and the development of tools for generating data and tools for acting on the data collected.
