Terra Nova Test Scores | Understand Terra Nova Scores

The TerraNova test score indicates how well the child is doing in relation to students across the country.  The scores are returned in National Percentiles The 50th percentile means that a student is on grade level.

The following are types of scores used to report the TerraNova test results:

  • Scaled Score – A standard score indicates performance on the given test. Scores range from 0 to 999. Scaled scores are expected to increase with each grade level.
  • National Percentile – A value on a scale that indicates the percent of distribution that is equal to or below it. A score of 58 percentile means 58% of all students who took the test (in the same grade and of the same age) scored at or below this student. These scores cannot be compared year to year or test subject to test subject. They are not evenly spaced between 0 and 100.
  • Normal Curve Equivalent – The mean, mode, and median for this test is 50. This score can be compared from year to year or from subject to subject (Reading to test subject Math). Values are related to the normal or bell curve and are evenly spaced between 0 and 100.
  • Cognitive Skills Index (PTCS and InView) – This is derived from five sub-tests that assess cognitive skills.
  • Anticipated Achievement Score (PTCS and InView) – This score is determined based on the results of the InView test, coupled with the student’s age and grade level. “Anticipated” means what the student is expected to achieve.
  • Objectives Performance Index – an estimate of the number of items a student would be expected to answer correctly if there had been 100 items tested for that particular objective.

I would like more information on the Terra Nova testing for 2nd grade.


Under Norm-Referenced Scores the “Local Percentile/Stanine” are included on the report. What does “Local” specifically refer to? The school, city, state, etc…???
