Schedule of IABs in English/Language Arts and Mathematics

Teachers use the Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) in English/Language Arts and Mathematics throughout the school year to assess smaller bundles of content. The IABs are intended to provide teachers and students the ability to check where they are at that moment in time, and teachers can use results to determine next steps for instruction. Beginning in the 2019–2020 school year, new focused IABs will assess no more than three assessment targets to provide teachers with a more detailed understanding of student learning.
