HI! I am brand new to this site and I am looking for some good resources to help get my fourth grade ESL students ready for the ISAT. Any ideas?
Thanks! )

First, check to make sure that the LANGUAGE MODIFIED version of the ISAT (ISAT-LM) was ordered for those students. It was new...as of last year (I think).
And, perfect -- you're in IL! Check this website:

http://www.isbe.net/bilingual/default.htm

Especially check out the ISAT and ISAT-LM comparisons and the accommodation presentation.
Depending on your reading series, there may be things in the teacher's edition or (as in my case) an entire separate booklet about test prep. You may want to make sure the students know and understand the 'bubble' system. Highlight test strategies like rereading, eliminations, checking for useful information, underlining, quick notes, questioning, etc. Look up retired questions/examples on the internet and work on them with those students.

There's a start for you. :-)
