Terra Nova Achievement Test: 2nd, 3rd, 4th Grades
Terra Nova is a norm-reinforced nationally standardized achievement test administered to students across the country, with norms including time of year administered. Unlike proficiency test where testing is on content that has been taught, achievement tests measure content that may have been taught and content students could be expected to have mastered according to their cognitive ability.
Why the Terra Nova? It is a widely used and respected achievement test that measures mastery in core subjects and is user-friendly with current content. The test provides detailed diagnostic information, norm- and criterion- referenced scores, performance level data, and results are available just days after exams are submitted for scoring. Terra Nova also aligns with state standards and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) framework and can report student achievement relative to state standards.
