Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR)

Each spring, Illinois students participate in the state assessment, now called the Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR). The assessment was previously known as the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). The IAR is aligned with the Illinois Learning Standards and asks students to demonstrate and apply their knowledge and skills through problem-solving, critical thinking, and writing skills.
