This collection of materials is not a test, The materials in this collection have NOT been selected to represent the typical range of difficulty. of an ISA test An actual ISA test is carefully constructed to ensure that the range of difficulty of the. questions reflects the range of reading ability of the population for each grade. The materials in this collection cover Grades 3 4 and 5 Some materials may be too hard for Grade 3. and some materials may be too easy for Grade 5 If a teacher wants to use some of these materials. for students to practise on it is important that the teacher only selects the stimulus pieces that are of. an appropriate level of reading difficulty for their students. Teachers should use this material as a model Teachers can develop questions that assess similar. kinds of skills using their own reading materials,Other ISA Sample Reading Collections.
