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.

  • Grades 4–8 (Levels 10–14) 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 are timed, except for Levels 5 and 6.
