What is the ITBS?
The Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) are a set of standardized tests to help educators, students and institutions evaluate basic skills such as:
- Word Analysis,
- Reading Comprehension,
- Social Studies (Levels 7 and 8 only),
- Science (Levels 7 and 8 only), and
- Sources of Information
ITBS are written in levels 1-8. Each test level consists of a series of tests administered in content sections with each section designed to measure specific skills. Test levels 5-8 are administered to students from kindergarten through second grade (K-2). Educational institutions employ the series of tests in primary grades to gain information about classes and students for instructional planning, to supplement teacher observations regarding student abilities, and to establish a basis for subsequent annual evaluation of student progress.
