ILLINOIS SCIENCE ASSESSMENT
As per state mandate, all District 86 students enrolled in a first-year Biology course took the computer-based Illinois Science Assessment in May 2016. The test is designed to assess student mastery of the Next Generation Science Standards, which are part of the New Illinois Learning Standards. Results from this assessment are expected to be released by ISBE in mid-November. The testing window for the 2016-2017 school year is from March 1 - April 28, 2017.
