What does a school need to do to administer Iowa Assessments in the CSP?

Schools order Riverside test materials online, go to www.purposefuldesign.com and login with your school's member account as your Username.

Schools without an online account may contact ACSI Care Team to gain access to the online store.

A school will also need to complete the Order for Scoring Services. Instructions for this process will be communicated to the school once the materials order has been placed.
