IRI & ISAT Drawings
Because it is so important to the IHLA program to receive good scores on the IRI and ISAT testing, we are encouraging students to do a practice test each month. In this practice test, you will become familiar with how the ISAT test is formatted and what type of questions you will be asked during the test.  This is also important with the IRI test. Your student will become familiar with the testing and how the program works.    

We have created a drawing that all the students have a chance to enter each month.  For any student who does an IRI or ISAT practice test each month, they will let their mentor know and that student will be put in for a $15.00 gift card to Amazon to purchase what they would like.  If they do the IRI and ISAT practice tests every month, they will be able to be put into a drawing for a $50.00 certificate!  

There will be 3 $15.00 certificates to Amazon and 1 $50.00 certificate to Amazon given out for the IRI practices tests.  

There will be 3 $15.00 certificates to Amazon and 1 $50.00 certificate given out for the ISAT practice tests.

We will be drawing for these gift certificates to Amazon in the middle of March. 

We encourage all to participate and familiarize yourself with both tests.  Once you have taken the practice test, please email your mentor that you have taken this test and she will put you in for the drawing! 

Below are instructional videos on how to take the IRI and/or ISAT practice tests:
