Increased expectations on the Illinois Standard Achievement Test (ISAT) have been implemented this year, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Des Plaines and Park Ridge school districts are pumping up curriculum to help students keep up with increased demands in state standardized testing, the Chicago Tribune reports.

More information on the Illinois Standards Acheivement Test is available on the Illinois State Board of Education website.
