Standards in Essential Need of Support
SENS are standards that are high priority AND have shown low-performance levels.
*SENS  are a result of 2022 legislation, COVID fallout, and the need to focus on specific standards.
*NO standards were removed.
*SENS will be updated annually based on data. A new SENS list will be published in July following 2022 ILEARN data collection.
Grewe SENS Document
SENS Selection in K-2
K-2 was treated differently than 3-8 in the SENS selection process because there aren’t the same level of resources and data available at the state level for those grade levels. Priority and performance determinations were made by a slightly different process. The IDOE used vertical articulation (related standards) from the grade 3 ILEARN blueprints to determine the priority of the standards. Therefore, if a vertically aligned standard at grade 3 was a high priority, the related/prerequisite grade 2 (or grade 1 or K) standard was deemed high priority.
IDOE also has access to statewide benchmark/interim assessment data for grades K-2 which was used to inform the performance indicator, along with the performance of the related standards at grade 3 on ILEARN.  Educator committees analyzed the standards identified using both sets of data to ensure they were in line with classroom instruction and experiences.
