What is the InView Test?
InView Test, a nationally normed-referenced test, is a product of CTB McGraw Hill, that assesses cognitive skills which can map strengths, reveal hidden abilities (of what students are capable of doing) and point the way to new opportunities. InView helps with critical screening and identification for student placement, gifted and talented, and other special programs and services. It also helps identify students whose achievement is inconsistent with their abilities.
InView takes an assessment of cognitive abilities that includes verbal reasoning, sequences, analogies, and quantitative reasoning. The results provide a reliable measure of skills and abilities important for academic success. Sometimes it is used with the TerraNova achievement test. The InView test is often administered to second graders as part of a Gifted & Talented or other assessment, but can also be given through grade 12.
