Copyright © 2008 by The University of Iowa. All rights reserved. Reproduced from the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills® (ITBS®). Reprinted by permission of The Riverside Publishing Company.

Practice tests are designed to briefly acquaint students with the kinds of questions (not content) found on achievement or abilities tests. Students practice by answering an average of 2–4 questions in each subject area using actual test format; however, the difficulty level of the test is not represented. Practice tests are test specific; this particular item is intended to prepare students who are taking ITBS Forms A, B, or C Levels 9, 10, or 11.

Order only one set (which includes teacher's guide) and additional practice tests when ordering for multiple students.

Due to the nature of our contract with the publisher, this product is available only to students not enrolled in publicly funded schools (including charter schools). If your student is not homeschooled or enrolled in a privately funded school, you may still purchase Better Test Scores, which is available for Grades 3–8.

Practice Test Kit ITBS: Grades 3-5 (Levels 9-11, teacher & student)

Practice Test Kit ITBS: Grades 3-5 (Levels 9-11, teacher & student) is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful The practice tests are very helpful in preparing a student for a standardized test, especially if they've never done it before. We did portions of the practice test, then immediately did the actual test. I like that the practice tests didn't take very long, but still helped prepare her for what kinds of questions she would see on the test.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too abbreviated to be helpful I bought this to give my fourth-grader some practice with the standardized test format. The booklet contained practice tests of about 4 to 8 questions each, and they were very simple for her. I knew that these tests were not designed to teach content, but they were so brief that they did not accurately simulate a test-taking situation, either. Overall, I was disappointed in this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Practice Test Kit ITBS: Grades 3-5 (Levels 9-11, teacher & student) I purchased this as an affordable test practice in preparation for my child to take the Iowa test for the first time. I liked that it included the teacher's guide as well. Unfortunately it was well below my expectations. There were about three questions per section and because it combined lower grades, that meant you only had one question for your grade level,. This could not be used to prepare for a test if you want multiple problems in all the categories for a specific grade level. I did not use it and actually returned it and found another product to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridiculous waste of money Useless and a total ripoff. There is minimal, basic information which should be in a free pamphlet rather than charging any amount of money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Glad we Used this Practice Test First My daughter was worried about taking her first multiple-day, standardized test. She had never used a "bubble sheet" answer form. We did the "practice test" mostly to familiarize her with the process. It not only served this purpose but after realizing she had correct answers throughout the practice test - her confidence was greatly improved. I cannot imagine doing the full grade level tests without first doing the practice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good I ordered the paper IBST. It was easy to understand and administer. I had no problems with it and I got the results in an e-mail before the anticipated date.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good tool, but needs more practice questions Good tool for familiarizing students with the format for the ITBS. I was disappointed with the number of test questions provided in each section of the test. Overall, it was worthwhile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Insufficient practice test This was very overpriced for what it contained. There were only 4 questions in each category. I expected a practice test of greater quantity and with much more varied samples of questions. There is no reason why this should be priced so high.
