Terra Nova 2nd Grade Practice Questions

The TerraNova Test serves as an achievement test that is administered to students in grades K-12. The exam strives to assess higher-order thinking as well as other academic skills that the child has been taught in school. The test measures specific skill criteria such as achievement in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, vocabulary and spelling. The test is formatted as a multiple choice test, however 1st graders and above may be given free-response questions.

The second grade TerraNova is unique in that is was designed to build on the kindergarten and first grade exams. This skill progression is especially apparent on the “language” section, as the vocabulary, spelling, and grammar is more challenging. Additionally, the mathematics section begins to focus on content areas such as geometry, word problems as well as units of measurement (just to name a few). The practice questions below will provide your child with the ability to familiarize themselves with the test content as well as the question formatting.

If Q5 is the pic of the dog it should make it more clear that it is not a picture of a dog but a dog looking in the mirror bc option 1 is a reflection on trees on the water and 3 looks like a picture or painting of a dog hanging on a wall


The answer to the last example question should be option1. The water shows a reflection of the trees. Option 3 could be a picture not a mirror.


Kathryn –

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I’m having our Marketing Team change the answer.

All the best,



Question 5 shows the reflection of a tree in the water whereas the supposedly right answer is a picture of a dog. There is nothing to indicate the dog is looking in a mirror, so the correct test answer given is wrong. Other comments drew your attention to the wrong answer marked, and you did not change it online. There should be no room on a test for errors on the publisher’s part like this.


I’ll like to have the 100 questions to practice
