ITBS Grades 1-2 (Form C, Level 7)

ITBS Grades 1-2 (Form C, Level 7) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but could use some improvement This was the first time I administered the 1st grade test. For the most part I was very pleased and am looking forward to receiving the results. However, I was frustrated during the Math Problems portion. My student's strength is in reading and during this section of the test, everything depended completely on listening. She was unable to even get to the point where she could do the math because she was so busy trying to process only by listening. I believe that listening is an important skill and should be practiced and tested as it is in another portion of the Iowa test, but in her case, her actual MATH skills weren't being tested. Had she been allowed to READ the story problems she would have performed better, as I've seen her do throughout the year. Perhaps this section would be better if the students could read along if they were able.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The illustrations some of the illustrations for a six year old were either out dated or very hard to interpret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iowa Basics Tests are a good value and helpful The Iowa Basics Tests are a good educational tool to evaluate the student's strengths and weaknesses. I have used them several times over the years and found them educator and student friendly. I have found them to be less politically correct than others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good The testing booklet was good and did a good job overall on testing all subjects over a broad scope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ITBS Grades 1-2 (Form C, Level 7) Test The test was easy to administer, but a bit too extensive for the grade level, we think. Our child is quite advanced for his age and can concentrate well on a given subject, but we think less able children may lose focus due to the length and various emphases of the test. Also, some of the pictures and illustrations in the test are hard to interpret and could perhaps be updated. Overall, the test accomplishes its goals, and we would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Far Easier Than Expected For a first-time tester, I presumed that it would take me a long time to get up to speed on how to properly administer this test, but I was wrong -- it is so clearly laid out and explained that it took me only a few moments to understand the system and the process. Testing itself was painfree through good instructions, easy-to-read prompts, and clear language. I don't hesitate to say that my child not only did well with this test, but enjoyed the process as a challenge. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly This test was very easy to use. Expectations for both my student and myself were presented clearly and made it simple to conduct without any questions. I appreciated the approximate time each test should take so I could plan ahead and also the spelled out dialogue that I was to present introducing each test. My only criticism is for the Social Studies section, some of the answers were not as clear as I would have liked. After submitting the completed test I was very satisfied with quick access to the test scores. Very pleased customer, I will be using this again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm ordering this test again next year!! This test was a good overview of the skills we had covered in the first grade. My son did not mind the test at all and did not feel overwhelmed because the sections were broken into manageable portions. He scored well and I'm planning to reorder for second grade!
