    Viewing Scores

    If your student took a state exam an Individual Student Report (ISR) of your student’s score(s) is available in PowerSchool. To view electronic copies of the ISR in PowerSchool, log into PowerSchool through a web browser Once on the website, click on State Test Reports in the left-hand menu bar. The ISR is not viewable on the PowerSchool app.




    Any standardized test score is a single indicator of student performance and one piece of his or her educational picture. Your student’s test score should be considered along with all other information provided throughout the school year.


    If you have questions or concerns about viewing the Individual Student Report, please let us know.
