ITBS (Iowa Test of Basic Skills) and the ITED (Iowa Tests of Educational Development)

Iowa students are assessed annually in English Language Arts/literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, and history. The assessments measure whether each student has gained the knowledge and skills in the subject for their grade..

Merit’s language arts and math software programs can help students prepare for the tests. The content and format of Merit’s programs can help students develop and strengthen their test-taking skills as well as their reading, writing and math skills.

Merit reading software has been proven -- through rigorous, scientifically based research -- to increase both student reading comprehension and standardized test scores. Merit research study findings reveal that education software is an effective tool to improve test scores and academic performance.
