The Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS)
For Summit's CURRENT 1st-8th Grade Students:

Thursday, April 15th and Friday, April 16th


  • Sharpened #2 pencils

  • Water bottle

  • A few non-messy snacks

  • Book to read when finished

  • Students should come well-rested and fed

Testing is free and offered to Summit's 1st-8th graders. Students taking the ITBS through Summit must take the test for their current Summit grade level. If you'd like your student to take a different grade level test, please click the "Other Testing Options" button on the Summit Academy Testing web page.


1st-2nd Graders: These students take the ITBS test at home under the guidance of a parent. Summit orders the materials for these parents to use, parents return the materials and Summit submits the tests for processing, providing the parents with results in early summer. Parents pick up testing materials the week prior to testing, and must return them by Friday, April 16th. Please fill out the form below if interested.


3rd-8th Graders: The ITBS will be administered to 3rd-8th graders on Thursday, April 15th and Friday, April 16th here at the Summit Academy by the Summit staff. Students will be socially-distanced and will be required to wear face masks when not eating/drinking.


High School Students: These students can take the PSATs and SAT at Summit on Tuesday, April 13th. See the High School web page for more information about these.

Students must register to take the ITBS test, via the form below, by Friday, February 19th. We apologize, but we cannot accommodate additional students.

Other Details for 3-8th Graders:


Drop Off: 3rd-8th graders should arrive, like a normal morning drop off between the school buildings, between 8:15-8:30. After symptom-screening, 7-8th graders can head into the Annex, and 3-6th graders can head into the main building, to find their assigned rooms. The first test begins at 8:45. No students will be allowed to begin testing after 8:45! 

We are completing these tests over the course of two days. Students will have snack breaks throughout both days (not a formal lunch). Remember to send students to school with non-messy snacks!


Pick-Up: 3rd graders test until around 1:15-1:20pm, and 4th-8th graders test until around 12:40-12:50pm. Parents can park by the playground behind the school, to collect students as they will be taken there after testing is done.
