Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Requirement

Welcome to the Idaho Comprehensive Literacy Assessments (ICLAs) page at Boise State. We offer testing to Boise State students that is required as part of course work/programs (internal testing), and we offer testing for those who need to take the assessments but are not Boise State students (external testing).

Please navigate to the appropriate ICLA page below, either internal or external, that applies to you. While all testing is completed remotely using a proctoring service, the procedures are different for internal and external testers. 

For Boise State students taking the ICLA exam as part of an academic course:

Internal Testing

For non-Boise State students who need to take the assessments:

External Testing



  • Internal testers – Review the information on the internal testing page, and then reach out to your instructor for the ICLA-related course, your program coordinator, or your academic advisor.
  • External testers – If you have questions about the Idaho Comprehensive Literacy requirement or your licensure process (not about taking the ICLA at Boise State), please visit the Idaho State Department of Education website, where you will find contact information. You can also review the Standards for Educator Preparation for more information.
  • External testers – Review the information on the external testing page, and then email Kimberly Parker,
  • All testers – If you need information about programs or program requirements at Boise State, please visit our Teacher Education page.
