Illinois Assessment of Readiness
The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) is a group of state-mandated tests that assess students' knowledge of the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Students in grades 3 through 8 take these assessments annually. The IAR contains similar content and testing features as the former PARCC Assessments.
