IOWA/ITBS international standardized testing
What you should know about IOWA/ITBS international standardized testing.
MBK will administer the IOWA/ITBS (IOWA test of basic skills) this year.
IOWA/ITBS is a standardized test assessing a student's academic skills in English,
Math, and Science. The Iowa Tests meet ADEC requirements for an annual,
nationally normed standardized test and offer educators a diagnostic look at how their
students are progressing in all areas necessary for academic growth.
MBK will administer the tests two times during the academic year. Once in Term 1 to
assess a student's current level of performance and once in Term 3 to assess the
student's progress and attainment.
Detailed data analysis will be supplied to all parents. This useful information will
allow you as parents to assist your students with areas in which they need support and
to encourage and challenge your students in areas where they excel.
