Iowa Assessments — Order for Scoring Services & Barcode Labels

Be prepared to complete your Order for Scoring Services and order Barcode Labels.

For schools using the Spring, Summer, or Back to School testing options, you do not need to complete OSS a second time, if you already registered for Spring 2020.

    •  Schools use the existing Spring 2020 Scoring Service Packets to package and return materials.
        ◦  No need to register for scoring, as the Spring 2020 OSS rolls over automatically.
    •  Schools may use existing Spring 2020 barcode labels on test booklets/answer sheets.

Required for ALL schools using machine scoring (not schools that self–score).
