Parents,

Are you confused when you see your student’s Iowa Assessments Profile Narrative?  Do you know if your student is proficient or not in reading, math and science?

We have created a narrated slideshow to help answer some of your questions about this state test.  We hope this will answer some of your questions and explain the scores generated from these assessments.  If you have any other questions please feel free to talk with your student’s teacher.
