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.
Third grade students taking the TerraNova should expect to see the following test areas; language, listening, mathematics, reading, reading comprehension, science/social studies, sources of information and vocabulary subtests. On the third grade TerraNova, students will begin to experience skill progression on the mathematics section. They will begin to see an increase in questions requiring multiplication, division, decimals, fractions and word problems.
