Interpreting Your Student's Iowa Assessments Scores
In January, Ankeny students took the Iowa Assessments test, which replaced the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) and Iowa Tests of Education Development (ITED) last year. Test results are now being sent home to parents.  Ankeny Schools provide several resources to help you interpret your student’s test scores.   It is recommended that you review this online information. 

Review the Iowa Assessments interpretation resources here.
