Congratulations to Brittany who scored in the top ten percent of students, nationally!
The Iowa tests are nationally, standardized norm-referenced tests that provide a comparison of Utah student achievement with the achievement of a nationally representative group of students. The resulting scores are interpreted in terms of comparisons made to a national sample of students in the same grade.
The Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) measure academic acheivement in reading, language, math, social studies, and science for kindergarten through 8th grade.
I found this picture on her school’s local blog, so thought I’d post it here. The tests were taken in May 2007.
Third grade high achievers – Brittany is in the back row, second from the left
