Iowa Assessments Test Prep – Grade 8
The Iowa Assessments (previously the Iowa Test of Basic Skills and originally Iowa Every Pupil Test of Basic Skills) also known informally as the Iowa Tests or colloquially as ITBS tests, are standardized tests provided as a service to schools by the College of Education of the University of Iowa.
The tests are administered to students in K-12 grade as part of the Iowa Statewide Testing Programs, a division of the Iowa Testing Programs (ITP).
In the 2011-2012 school year Houghton Mifflin Harcourt replaced the Iowa test of basic skills (ITBS) and the Iowa Tests of Educational Development with the newly designed Iowa Assessments.
The new design was implemented to more closely follow the Common Core State Standards. New research was also done on the Iowa Assessments to connect performance to the ACT exam. This will allow Iowa Assessments scores to determine if a student is on track to be ready for college.
After each quiz, students will be able to check results, retake the quiz unlimited times.
