In addition to the Iowa Assessments, Iowa Testing Programs develops and distributes
to Iowa schools tests for certain special programs. For information on these testing

Logramos® is an achievement battery for grades K-12
developed by Riverside Publishing Co. to be compatible in content and process with
the skills measured by the Iowa Tests. Thus, performance on Logramos is an indication
of the level of student achievement that we might expect of the student if he/she
took the Iowa Tests as a native-English speaker.
Qualls Early Learning Inventory - This inventory for grades
pre-K through 1 uses teacher ratings of many of the student characteristics that
are important for success in the primary grades. The purpose of this program is
to offer an efficient assessment of primary students' skills and behaviors that
can be used to supplement test score information obtained from the Iowa Assessments achievement
Constructed Response Supplement - This set of materials includes
assessment tools that are 30-minute assessments in Reading, Math, and Language for
grades 3-12, each requiring students to furnish or construct their responses to
the questions asked. The purpose of this program is to offer additional opportunities
to assess student achievement in core curricular areas using a different format
than is used in the Iowa Assessments achievement batteries.
Iowa Writing Assessment - The Iowa Writing Assessment
(IWA) is a set of materials and procedures that permits a school system to conduct
its own writing assessment in any of grades 3-12. The purpose of the program is
to assess students' abilities to generate, organize, and express their ideas in
response to specific writing situations.
