Illinois Science Assessment Framework: Grades 4 and 7.
Illinois State Board of Education
The Illinois Science Assessment Framework is designed to assist educators, test developers, policy makers and the public by clearly defining those elements of the Illinois Learning Standards that are suitable for state testing. It is not designed to replace a local science curriculum and should not be considered a state science curriculum. The Framework defines the science content that will be assessed in the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) beginning with the 2005-2006 school year. The science ISAT will continue to be presented in a multiple?choice format.
