ISD Online Learning Testing

Role of the Parent/Guardian Proctor for Fall 2021

All courses (AP, Regular, Honors, and Prescriptives) will take their Unit and Final Computer Scored Tests (CSTs) and Pretests (Prescriptive classes only) in a remote setting with a parent/guardian proctor during designated testing sessions. Thank you to our parent/guardian proctors for partnering with us during this time. We appreciate your support. Please carefully read this page over with your student to ensure we are honoring the Issaquah School District's Academic Integrity Policy.

*There are specific directions for how to administer CSTs and Pretests in the Testing Directions section.*

Note: AP Courses will also be required to take Teacher Scored Tests (TSTs) for each unit and their Final Test. These tests must be taken in person during designated testing sessions at the ISD Administration Building with an ISD proctor. There are no alternative testing times. The ISD Administration Building is located at: 5150 220th Ave SE Issaquah, WA 98029.
