ITBS TESTING 2018
TPA will be offering the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) to 1st – 12th grades on Thursday, April 19 and Friday, April 20. 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 run over two mornings, approximately 8:30 am – 1:00 pm each day. Subjects covered will 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 day (exceptions made for nursing mothers). Parents with bachelor’s degrees will be needed to be test readers, and other parents will assist in various ways. All students will test in April at Riverlawn Christian Church, 4243 N Meridian Ave, Wichita, KS.
