Iowa Assessments (Formerly ITBS/ITED) Print

How it works

The new Iowa Assessments generate readiness reports showing where students in Grades 6-12 land on the college and career preparedness scale-allowing you to pinpoint areas where achievement begins to slow. Individual student data can help identify struggling students who may require intervention or specialized learning programs.

 

 

Why it works

Iowa Assessments are the only assessments that begin evaluating student preparedness for the ACT/SAT in Grade 6 - two years before any other existing assessment system. Grades 6-8 are critical years for skills development, and the ability to begin intervention or adjust curricula to ensure students are “on track” for success before they enter high school goes a long way toward improving overall school and district performance. In addition, the longitudinal data systems allow you to track students year over year and within the school year, so you can demonstrate immediate and long term gains in achievement at the same time.
