Iowa Every-Pupil Tests Created For K-8


The Iowa Every-Pupil Tests, now named the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS), is a voluntary testing program for students in kindergarten through eighth grade provided to school districts by the College of Education of the University of Iowa. The ITBS tests, which assess vocabulary, reading, mechanics of writing, work-study skills and mathematics, allow administrators to compare student achievement in their district with other students around the country.
