The Iowa Tests meet most state’s requirements for an annual, nationally normed standardized test and offer educators a diagnostic look at how their students are progressing in key academic areas. Available for Kindergarten to Grade 12, the Iowa tests allow educators to trace student achievement growth continuously. These tests can be administered year-round by someone with at least a B.A. degree. The IOWA can be taken with the Interest Explorer™ to provide career guidance and counseling for 9th-12th graders. The IOWA can also be taken with the Cognitive Abilities Test™ (CogAT) to identify gifted and talented students as well as to identify at-risk students who may need further individual assessment.

Administration and Completion Times

Administration:

  • K5–2 (Levels 5–8) must be administered separately by grade.
  • Grades 3–8 (Levels 09–14) may be administered together.
  • Grades 9–12 (Levels 15–17/18) may be administered together.

Note that Level 9 includes two extra subtests—Word Analysis and Listening.

Completion Times: Tests for levels 9-17/18 are timed. Levels 5R and 6 are untimed and levels 7 and 8 are untimed except for a portion of the Math Computation test. The times listed in the administration directions for levels 5R-8 are only approximations.

  • K5–3 (Levels 5-9 ): 2.5–5 hours over 3 days
  • Grades 4–8 (Levels 10-14): 3.5-6 hours over 3 days
  • Grades 9–12 (Levels 15-17/18): 3.5-4.5 hours over 2 days

Note: These are approximate times for the Full Battery. If you opt to do just the core portions of the test (Reading, Language, and Math), administration time will decrease substantially.
