This week our Lower School students are participating in the TerraNova test. It’s been a week of getting to bed early, bringing healthy snacks and using our brains to their full potential.
The TerraNova® Tests are a series of achievement tests designed to assess children in Kindergarten through the 12th grade. These tests cover and measure achievement in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, vocabulary, spelling, and other areas. The TerraNova is published by CTB/McGraw-Hill and provides a research-based test blueprint to closely align to today’s challenging content and performance standards.
The TerraNova offers multiple assessments to measure important higher-order thinking skills as well as basic and applied skills. These assessments generate norm-referenced achievement scores, criterion-referenced objective mastery scores, and performance-level information. The subjects tested on include Reading, Language, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
TerraNova Complete Battery provides detailed diagnostic information. This series of assessments generates precise norm-referenced achievement scores, a full complement of criterion-referenced objective mastery scores, and performance-level information.
TerraNova Survey is an abbreviated version of the Complete Battery and provides a general measure of achievement with a minimum amount of testing time. The Survey generates norm-referenced achievement scores, criterion-referenced objective mastery scores, and performance-level information.
Finally, TerraNova Plus Tests provide in-depth information about students’ basic skills. Use them to measure important skills in Word Analysis, Vocabulary, Language Mechanics, Spelling and Mathematical Computation. The Plus tests are used for additional diagnostic information about your child.
