iLEAP

 iLEAP

     The iLEAP tests include mostly multiple-choice questions, but also include some

constructed-response items that require students to compose an answer and

generally require higher-order thinking. The iLEAP tests are administered in March,

during the same week that the LEAP and Graduation Exit Exam (GEE) are given. As

in the LEAP and GEE tests, scores are reported in terms of the state’s achievement

levels, which are Advanced, Mastery, Basic, Approaching Basic and Unsatisfactory.

The iLEAP includes tests in English, Math, Science and Social Studies for grades 3,5, 6, and 7.

At grade 9, iLEAP includes English and Math only. Louisiana’s goal is for

all students to perform at the Basic or above level by the year 2014.

    

 

 

Advanced A student at this level has demonstrated superior performance beyond the level of mastery.
Mastery A student at this level has demonstrated competency over challenging subject matter and is well prepared for the next level of schooling.
Basic A student at this level has demonstrated only the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for the next level of schooling.
Approaching Basic A student at this level has only partially demonstrated the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for the next level of schooling.
Unsatisfactory A student at this level has not demonstrated the fundamental knowledge and skills needed for the next level of schooling

"Parents can use the scores their children have earned on the iLEAP to get a clear

indication of how well their children might perform on the high-stakes LEAP and GEE

tests,” said Board of Elementary and Secondary Education President Linda Johnson.

“The iLEAP standards were set by Louisiana educators who used the LEAP and

GEE “cut scores” as a guide, so this test can truly act as an early-warning system for

students who need extra help to reach the goal of Basic or above.”
