3rd grade students are tested for reading ability and results are categorized as benchmark, meaning the student is at or above grade level, strategic, meaning a student is near grade level and intensive, meaning a student is below grade level.
Information about the IRI and test results can be found at the Idaho State Department of Education website here: https://www.sde.idaho.gov/site/reading_indicator/
Updated February 2015
Previous data reported each score category (benchmark, strategic and intensive) separately. In December, 2014, data from 2000-2014 was consolidated for this indicator.
3rd grade reading score percentages were not available in a reliable form in 2010.
