The Indiana Reading Evaluation and Determination (IREAD-3) is a grade three reading assessment developed in accordance with state legislation. IREAD-3 is designed to measure foundational reading skills based on Indiana Academic Standards through grade three. Test design centers on understanding these standards, collaborating with Indiana educators to define content priorities and evidence of mastery, and creating key documents that define the assessment.

All grade three students enrolled in accredited Indiana schools must participate in and attain a passing score on IREAD-3. A summer retest opportunity is available for students who did not pass IREAD-3 during the spring administration.
