The Iowa battery of tests is a nationally normed, standardized test yielding “percentile” ranks, which are comparisons against norm group scores. To determine which test levels are normed against the grade your child is in, refer to the table:
|Test Level:||Normed Against:|
In special circumstances, test levels can be compared against one grade higher or one grade lower, but this requires a special request. If previous scores are low, a learning disability exists, or some other circumstance requires special consideration, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
The new Iowa assessment does not offer two first grade levels. To help with early level considerations, we offer this article.
