The Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) is the summative accountability assessment for all Iowa students that meets the requirements of the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The assessments are aligned with the Iowa Core learning standards and provide a clear and accurate assessment of student learning outcomes. Student growth, proficiency and readiness indicators will be reported
