The ITBS measures the skills and achievements of students and provides an in-depth measure of important educational objectives. It also yields reliable and comprehensive information about the development of students’ skills and their ability to think critically. The ITBS test compares a students across the county in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science and are taken in schools throughout the United States and overseas by approximately 3 million students annually.
