Idaho State Testing (ISAT)

22-23 Testing Information, Registration and FAQ

The Idaho State Department of Education requires all 7th, 8th & 11th grade students to complete the Idaho Standards Achievement Test (ISAT).  The test subjects are Math, English Language Arts (ELA) and Science.

iSucceed Virtual Schools will provide an in-person test throughout the state of Idaho.  Please note: the State Department of Education has removed the option for remote testing. All testing must be in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. I took the ISAT already. Why am I being told to test again?
    1. The ISAT test is required at several grade levels. If you took the ISAT tests in Spring of 2022 during your 10th grade year and did not meet or exceed the 11th grade proficiency level, you’ll have to test again
    2. These changes were adopted by Idaho State Legislators during the 2022 legislative session. See this document for further explanation
  2. I already registered for the SAT, why am I receiving this notice on the ISAT?
    1. The SAT (College Board college entrance exam) is not the same as the ISAT (Idaho State Achievement Test). They are different tests.
  3. None of the test locations are near me. What do I do?
    1. We do our best to meet students where they are, but Idaho is big and we can’t go everywhere. You’ll need to test at your local brick & mortar school. Please reach out to that school and inquire with them about testing. You’ll also need to notify us of your plans at [email protected]
  4. Is this test required?
    1. Yes. The State of Idaho/State Department of Education requires all students identified to test to complete the ISAT.
  5. Do I  need to complete my tests in one day?
    1. Not necessarily. If your chosen test venue/location has more than 1 day available, you can choose to test over two days. If you know that you’ll need two days to test, we encourage you to make two ISAT appointments. If your chosen venue/location only has 1 test day available, you’ll need to complete your tests that day.
