Measuring Up

Along with all the schools in the diocese, and many across the country, St. Apollinaris administers the Iowa Test of Basic Skills in October each year to measure the skills and achievement of students from Grade 2 through Grade 8. Developed at The University of Iowa and backed by a tradition of more than 70 years of educational research and test development experience, the ITBS provides an in-depth assessment of students’ achievement of important educational objectives. Tests cover material in reading vocabulary and comprehension, language and grammar skills, mathematics computation and problem solving as well as social studies, science and critical thinking. The tests are administered early in the school year to serve as a diagnostic tool for teachers and parents.
