Guide To The 2004 IMAGE Assessment: Illinois Measure Of Annual Growth In English And IMAGE Mathematics.
Illinois State Board of Education
The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) administered Illinois Measure of Annual Growth in English (IMAGE) tests in Spring 2004. IMAGE tests are administered to Limited English Proficient (LEP) students who have been in either a Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) or Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI) program since September 30 of the current school year, but less than five years. IMAGE reading and writing tests were given to eligible LEP students in grades 3-11, and IMAGE mathematics tests were given to eligible LEP students in grades 3, 5, 8, and 11. ISBE initially developed the tests in response to a General Assembly Task Force?s recommendation to administer a standardized reading and writing English proficiency assessment to eligible LEP students. IMAGE mathematics tests were introduced for the first time in 2002 to meet federal school accountability requirements. This document reviews the percentages for the state of Illinois as a whole on the IMAGE Assessment tests from 2000-2004.
