Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) Test Scores

To benchmark our students’ performance, each spring Good Shepherd students in grades 3-8 take the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills Assessment.  This standardized test allows Good Shepherd to compare its students with others from across the country.  The feedback from these tests also gives Good Shepherd valuable data about the strengths of our curriculum.

Below are the average results by grade level for our 3rd through 8th graders on the 2016-2017 test.

Interpreting the scores:  The scores below represent grade equivalency.  A score of 3.3 represents a student’s skill to be on par with a third grade student in their third month of the school year.  Since we take the tests in April, a score that is exactly average for a third grader would be 3.7.
