According to an update from IDOE, early results being shared with schools and parents confirm the expected decline. Results show a drop in English language arts and a more significant decline in math. The department says 97 percent of students participated.
But the department has also made clear scores won't be used for school accountability this year – the state has been approved for a federal accountability waiver and state lawmakers approved a so-called "hold harmless" measure during this year's legislative session.
ILEARN results go public July 1.
