ITBS Testing



TPA will be offering the ITBS test to 1st-12th graders on April 20-21, 2017.   This is a standardized test which is not required by the government but may prove helpful in assessing a student’s strengths and weaknesses relative to his peers. The results are for parental use only and are not given to any other entity.

Testing will be different this year due to the necessity of using updated test materials and procedures. Testing will run over two mornings, approximately 8:30 – 12:30 each morning. Subjects covered will still include Vocabulary, Reading comprehension, Spelling, Capitalization, Punctuation, Usage and Expression, Math Concepts & Problem Solving, Math Computation, Social Studies, Science and (for high school only) Sources of Information. The test results show where a student falls in national percentiles and grade equivalents for each subject.

One parent will be required to assist with testing and remain on site each morning (exceptions made for nursing mothers). Parents with bachelor’s degrees will be needed to be test readers, and others will assist in various ways. All students will test in April at Riverlawn Christian Church, 4243 N Meridian Ave, Wichita, KS. Cost is $45 for 1st-2nd graders, $35 3rd -12th. ($40/ $30 for those who have purchased a TPA membership).   Registrations must be received by March 15, 2017.
