Selecting Your District's Default Assessment
Default Assessment Selection
Iowa schools are required to select a state approved literacy assessment for each grade level K-6th. That assessment is set as the default literacy assessment for the school year and is used for data reporting for Healthy Indicators and Early Literacy Implementation (ELI) requirements. For districts who utilize FastBridge math assessments, you are encouraged to select a default math assessment, as this will allow the data to populate into reports in the Student Success data system.
How to Select Default Assessments
The school default assessment selection and district review will occur in the Consolidated Accountability and Support Application (CASA). This year's collection in CASA must be completed between August 1-15th, 2022 for the 2022-23 school year. See K-8 Default Assessment Collection Instructions for more information on how.
Viewing Previous Default Literacy Assessment Selections
Tip: The previous year's default literacy assessments selected for the district/building are also visible in CASA during the new default selection process.
