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.
Parents: Please tell your child to read the question and circle the best answer.
