About Iowa Assessments

The Iowa Assessments enable administrators and educators to:

  • Measure student achievement
  • Monitor student growth
  • Indicate college and career readiness
  • Evaluate student mastery of next generation skills and rigorous learning standards defined by the Iowa Core

The District tests grades 9-11 in the fall and grades 3-6 in the spring. The Iowa Assessment is just one of the different types of assessments our educators use to evaluate the learning needs of the individual student.

Iowa School Report Card



2016 BCSD Iowa Report Card Data

The Iowa School Report Card is a new system to show how each public school is performing on certain educational measures. The system assigns schools one of six overall ratings: Exceptional, High-Performing, Commendable, Acceptable, Needs Improvement, and Priority. The ratings are based on each school’s performance over a two-year period on up to eight educational measures.

The Iowa School Report Card was developed by the Iowa Department of Education. The site meets a legislative requirement and aligns with Department efforts to provide Iowans easier access to meaningful education statistics and to pair accountability and support for schools.
