Free Iowa Assessments (ITBS) Samples and Practice Questions

We used the CogAT practice tests and I would definitely recommend it to other parents. I liked that my child had both the timed and step-by-step options when taking a practice test.

Very helpful! I used the MAP 4th grade practice pack and the practice questions were very close to what the actual test was like. I passed with flying colours.

I got the NYC G&T Level B tests. Overall it was great, because my child passed the test on the first attempt! The practice questions were indispensable. My child found the videos less engaging and they seemed to be geared toward a slower audience. The price was just right.

Wonderful resources for OLSAT test preparation. We were very happy with the results.

Iowa Assessment and ITBS Free Sample Questions

Our free practice material demonstrates the type of questions your child will encounter on the real test, and gives you an example of the practice questions you can find in our practice packs. Below you will find sample questions and answers for some of the major topics on the Iowa Assessments, including language, math problem solving, and vocabulary.

Iowa Assessments and ITBS Language Practice Question

The following question is a Level 5 Language question and is typically administered to children in kindergarten.


Mark the column that has a fruit that grows on a vine at the top of the column and a fruit that is a type of berry at the bottom of the column.


The correct answer is D.

The fourth option is the only option that adheres to the properties mentioned above. Grapes are a type of fruit that grow on vines, and strawberries are a type of berry. In the fourth option, the grapes are located at the beginning of the column and the berries are located at the end of the column.

Iowa Assessments and ITBS Math Problem Questions

Question 1

The following question is a Level 9 Math Problem Solving question and is typically administered to children in the 3rd grade. 


John rides home from work on his bicycle. On the way home, he makes a stop at the pharmacy and another at the grocery. If the pharmacy is ten miles from work, the grocery is three miles from the pharmacy, and home is eight miles from the grocery, how many miles did John ride in all?

  1. 8 miles
  2. 10 miles
  3. 21 miles
  4. 18 miles

The correct answer is C, 21 miles.

To answer this question you simply need to add up all of the distances. Since the distance from work to the pharmacy is 10 miles, the distance from the pharmacy to the grocery is 3 miles, and the distance from the grocery to home is 8 miles, then the total distance is 21 miles.


Therefore, 21 miles is the correct answer. 

Question 2

The following question is an example of a math word problem likely to appear on the Iowa Assessments Level 9 Math test.


The average temperature in Chicago in October is higher than the average temperature in London in April and lower than the average temperature in London in September. What could the average temperature in Chicago in October be?

  1. 9°C
  2. 11°C
  3. 12°C
  4. 19°C

The correct answer is (C) 12°C.


Find the average temperatures in London in April and September:
The average temperature in London in April is 11°C.
The average temperature in London in September is 17°C.

Thus, the temperature in Chicago in October is higher than 11°C and lower than 17°C. Answer choice (C), 12°C, fits.

Therefore, the correct answer is (C).

Iowa Assessments and ITBS Vocabulary Practice Question

The following question is a Level 14 Vocabulary question and is typically administered to children in the 8th grade.


Choose the word that is the closest in meaning to the underlined word above it.

 The hostile neighbor

  1. congenial
  2. hospitable
  3. deceitful
  4. unfriendly

The correct answer is D, unfriendly.

The word hostile means not friendly, antagonistic, and it is related to or characteristic of an enemy. Therefore,the closest word is unfriendly (D). 

Answer (A) is incorrect because congenial means agreeable and pleasant. This is the opposite of hostile.
Answer (B) is incorrect because hospitable may sound like hostile, but it actually means welcoming and warm to strangers and guests. This is the opposite of hostile.
Answer (C) is incorrect because deceitful means misleading others, and not being honest. This is not same meaning as hostile.

Preparing for the Iowa Assessments and ITBS Tests in 2021

The ITBS and Iowa Assessments are standardized achievement tests for students in kindergarten through 8th and 12th grade, respectively. These tests are designed to measure academic growth and assess critical thinking skills. The Iowa Assessments is divided into a series of subtests. The topics of these subtests are dependent upon the test level, as each one measures a different skill.

The ITBS and Iowa Assessments' test levels are divided into four sections: Levels 5–6, Levels 7–8, Levels 9–14, and Levels 15–18. As the knowledge base and level of intelligence at each of these levels grows, so too do the number of subtests and topics. Preparation each year for the ITBS and Iowa Assessments is key. We currently offer practice tests and materials for the 3rd Grade (Level 9) Iowa Assessments and ITBS.

Please note, our 3rd Grade pack currently does not include preparation for the social studies or the science subtests.

FREE Teachers' Resources for ITBS Testing & Iowa Assessments 2021

We used the CogAT practice pack. The questions in this study pack were very similar in style to what appeared on the actual test. I would definitely recommend this product to other parents.

I got the Family Membership Plan. I believe that because of these practice tests, my son is now in G&T classes and I've seen my daughter's confidence and scores also improve.

We used the NYC G&T pack. We ordered the materials a week before the test. My son was very happy and felt confident. Thanks!

TestPrep-Online was a really great tool for my 6th grader, and yes, she qualified for the GATE program with a 96%. My 12 year old daughter said it really helped her feel prepared for the actual test. I already recommended the practice pack to another mom. Thank you very much!

I used the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test pack. The preparation pack was very helpful. It helped me understand the format and style of the WBST which we had never sat before. The explanations after every question were very helpful, as well as the timed tests. A great resource!

We got the NNAT practice tests. The tests were really good and my daughter enjoyed taking them... I recommended it to anyone who came to me.

Testing Students with the Iowa Assessments

As part of your class preparation for the 2021 Iowa Assessments, your school administrator will determine the exact purpose for conducting this testing. It is helpful to understand why the school has chosen to implement the Iowa Assessments; the objectives below are often key factors in any school administrator’s testing decision. Read through the list and think about which objectives may apply to you.

  • Track levels – The Iowa Assessments can offer a great tool for teachers with large classes to help determine which students are struggling in certain subject areas. Equally, teachers can identify those students who may have surpassed a specific level. As the Iowa Assessments is aligned with the Common Core, the tests are a great indicator of class and student levels and can be a useful tool for tracking both strengths and weaknesses.
  • Direct class instruction – The Iowa Assessments is very useful when gauging class level as a whole. The results can help teachers to determine which subjects need more attention and which areas may be less emphasized.
  • Track growth – When used yearly, the Iowa Assessments tests are effective growth monitors that can help confirm individual students are advancing adequately as they progress in grade level.
  • Gauge college and career readiness – Using national ranks and standards from year to year can help determine if students are progressing toward college and career readiness.
  • Response to intervention (RTI) – The Iowa tests are widely used for special behavioral tracking. RTI is a universal screening of all children in the general education classroom. Struggling learners are provided with interventions at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate their rate of learning.
  • Placement tool – The Iowa Assessments can be used to determine individual student placement needs from grade to grade.
  • School ranking – Testing excellence can help place your school as an accountable educational institution, as well as provide your school with a high national or statewide ranking.

In addition to these objectives, the Iowa Assessments has been very influential in measuring alignment with Common Core standards, as well as in identifying gifted students.

Free Resources for Common Core Aligned Tests

The newest version of the Iowa Assessments (Forms E/F) has aligned all of the subtests at all levels with the Common Core, with the intention of tracking college and career readiness. For this same reason, University of Iowa's College of Education now distributes more extensive post-exam reports in an attempt to provide better feedback on student progress. This is an invaluable tool for educators looking to help their students succeed.

As our free resources are written for the Iowa Assessments, much of the material in our resources pack is now aligned with the Common Core. Our free teaching materials are available to all teachers and tutors. Visit our Teachers' page for more information on teaching resources and free materials, coming soon.

Iowa Assessments for Gifted Placement

An additional benefit of the Iowa Assessments is its partnership with the CogAT, or Cognitive Abilities Test, which is used to identify gifted students. Students who excel in both the Iowa Assessments and CogAT are often chosen by educators or community members to apply for gifted programs. To view our Iowa Assessments and CogAT Pack for 3rd Grade, head to our ITBS and CogAT Bundle page. If you would like additional information on the gifted testing process, or if you would like to see if any of your students qualify, visit our Gifted Children Tests page.

Iowa Assessments Levels

The Iowa Assessments forms E and F can be administered as early as first grade all the way through to twelfth grade. Below you will find test levels corresponding to grades:


Depending on the grade level, all of the subtests comprising the Iowa Assessments can be administered from anywhere between 2.5 to 4 hours. Preparing your students for both the content and duration of the test is vital for helping them perform at their best on test day. As your students are increasingly exposed to the various subtests and question types, they will become more confident and capable at taking the Iowa Assessments.

Iowa Assessments Subtests

The Iowa Assessments consists of five subtests that can be administered in their entirety or in part. The five subtests are all aligned with Common Core standards and include Language Arts, Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies. As students advance to higher levels of the Iowa Assessments, each subtest becomes progressively more challenging. Usually, your school administrator will determine which subtests and grades are to be tested depending on the purpose of testing. For more information, head to our ITBS & Iowa Assessments Subtests page.

Please note, our current 3rd Grade (Level 9) Iowa Assessments & ITBS practice pack does not include preparation for the social studies or the science subtests.

Iowa Assessments Test Scores

Like most standardized tests, the Iowa Assessments tracks foundational skills and higher order thinking (HOT) skills. Depending on the purpose of administering the tests, students are ranked across local and national scales. Once you or your school administrator have determined the purpose of testing, you will be able to determine which type of score report will most benefit your students. Score reports are provided in three different forms: standard scores, grade equivalents, and percentile rank. Find out more about scoring on our ITBS & Iowa Assessments Scores page.

COGAT Practice Test Grade 5 PART 1

Iowa Test for 4th Grade Students: Preparation and Test Info

The Iowa Assessments are a standardized test that allows educators to see which areas of instruction are strongest and which need to be improved. It also allows teachers to see how their students compare to others nationally. In the 4th grade, the Iowa Assessment exam is referred to as 'Level 10', which covers reading, writing, math, science and social studies.

Practice Tests from EDinformatics

Although the Iowa Department of Education doesn't currently offer online practice tests for the Iowa Assessments, your child can take released tests from other states to prepare. EDinformatics offers links to free practice tests from a wide variety of states. Many of these tests will have similar topics and can also help your child get used to the multiple-choice format.

Begin by looking for tests that cover similar topics at the 4th grade level. The Texas and Georgia standardized tests are excellent places to start. Use these tests to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses. It's best to administer practice tests well ahead of time so your child has time to improve these skills before he or she takes the Iowa Assessments.

Additionally, EDinformatics offers online assessments. These tests are based on state standards and can be graded instantly. Most of the online tests offer a question-by-question analysis, so you can see what questions your child answered incorrectly.

Information from the University of Iowa's College of Education

The University of Iowa provides valuable information about the Iowa Assessments. Although the practice tests are not available to the public, you may benefit from looking at the test descriptions. Here, you can find out the types of questions and the number of questions that will be asked on the Level 10 assessment. Additionally, there is a slide show that provides an overview of what to expect on each subject area for grades 3-5.
