Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS)

Each year in the Fall, grades 3-8, take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) test. ITBS measures the skills and achievement of students from grade 3 through to grade 8. Developed at The University of Iowa, and backed by a tradition of more than 70 years of educational research and test development experience, the ITBS provides an in-depth assessment of student achievement regarding important educational objectives. Tests in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, and Information Sources yield reliable and comprehensive data about the development of students skills, and critical thinking. STAR testing, provided by California public schools, is not available to private schools like West Valley Christian School. It is not possible to correlate ITBS test scores with STAR’s.
