Language – The language section of the ITBS is intended to assess the comprehension, usage and grammatical awareness of speech and language.
Reading – The reading section of the ITBS encompasses a variety of skills that not only assess vocabulary usage, but a student’s ability to fully comprehend what he or she is reading.
Math – The math portion of the ITBS is consistent when it comes to the sub-categories that they present at each level. These topics include problem solving, data interpretation, computation, algebraic patterns, geometry as well as measurement.
