LEAP (Learning Enrichment Activities Program)
The Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, often known simply as the Iowa Tests, are a standardized test administered by the University of Iowa and used across the United States. It tests K–12 students on various subjects, such as mathematics and the language arts. At St. Mark, the test is administered in 3rd-8th grade. Each test subject is scored with a percentile score, comparing each student to the overall national results, and a grade equivalent, indicating the student’s progress within a hypothetical 15-year academic curriculum. These tests are administered in the fall.
