Istation, a Dallas-based provider of educational technology, reports that a study conducted by the Morgridge International Reading Center (MIRC) at the University of Central Florida (UCF) shows that student results on Istation assessments can predict performance on the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA).
The research compared Istation’s Indicators of Progress for Early Reading (ISIPTM ER) data and FSA scores in the state of Florida during the 2016-2017 school year. Reading test data was used for third graders across five public school districts. The study found very strong correlations between ISIP ER and FSA test scores across achievement levels. The study also provides the ISIP cut scores needed to predict the achievement level on the FSA.
