ITBS stands for Iowa Test of Basic Skills
Also known as the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, the ITBS Test is one of the best known and most widely taken tests in the United States. It is designed to be administered to children in grades K-8, and its partner, the ITED test, can continue to assess learning through high school.
If your child is facing an upcoming ITBS test, you may be feeling anxious. This is common, especially if your child has never taken one before or has performed poorly on previous tests. While it’s natural to be anxious, there’s no need to worry. At http://www.riverpub.com/products/itbs/details.html, you’ll find a complete breakdown of which skills are tested, at which grade levels they’re tested and even how many questions regarding each subject your child will need to answer.
While the ITBS test is intended to measure how well your child is learning in school, many parents find that practicing at home helps lessen anxiety and improve scores. Spending even just a little time each day can greatly improve your child’s chances of earning a high score, and, just as importantly, it will alleviate his stress and concern over the test and its prospects for his future.
The ITBS test is based on commonly taught subjects, ideas and concepts. Your child’s textbooks can provide a wonderful (and free) basis for at-home practice. If you feel your child needs more assistance, you can look online for study materials and quizzes designed specifically to complement the ITBS. It’s best to use as many practice materials as possible to give your child a broad range of materials and prepare her for whatever questions appear on the test. This will fortify her in case there are some difficult or complex questions on the test; extensive practice increases the chances that she has seen a similar question before and knows how to work through it.
