2022 IAR Testing for Grades 7 & 8- April 4, 5, & 6


PORTA students in grades 3-8 take federally required assessments every spring. These assessments help us understand how our students are growing academically, compared to their peers across the state. The required English Language Arts and Math assessment for grades 6-8 is called the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR). The required Science assessment for 8th grade students only is called the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA).

PORTA Junior High will administer IAR tests on the following dates: April 4th, April 5th, and April 6th.

The Illinois Science Assessment (8th grade only) will be administered later in April or May.

Make up testing will occur as needed. If you have questions about the IAR or ISA, please reach out to Mrs. McMahan by email at amcmahan@porta202.org or by calling the PORTA Jr-Sr High School office at 217-632-3216, ext. 5.
