Preparing Students For IAR

The state Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR), is coming up in April 2020. All students in grades 3–5 will test in reading/ELA and math. Also, our 5th-grade students will test in science. The IAR assessments are rigorous and can be difficult. The scores are important to Stevens and the 209U District. Have your child take note of the weight these tests carry. 

Provided below are tips to assist your child in doing their very best on the IAR:

  • Make sure your child is in attendance at school on the testing days.
  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep during the nights before testing.
  • As always, provide breakfast for your child on the morning of the tests.
  • Remind your child to ask the teacher questions if he/she does not understand the directions.
  • Tell your child to not worry about the test. Rather, express the importance to do the best they can.
