Illinois State Board of Education Makes Changes to ISAT Performance Levels

Illinois schools will see a decline in their students' ISAT performance level (Exceeds, Meets, Below Standards, and Academic Warning) at the elementary and middle school levels. This change is similar to changing a grading scale where 90-100 was considered an A, and now the scale is changed to 94-100 to achieve an A. The State of Illinois has raised the bar for all students.
