Istation has been approved by the Michigan Department of Education as one of the reading assessments available to school districts during the 2018-19 school year.

For Michigan, Istation will be available for “initial assessments.” According to the Michigan Department of Education, initial assessments are to be delivered to all students. The results will act as a primary indicator that a student may be at risk of falling behind and can highlight areas of concern for which additional instruction or support in English and language arts may be needed.
