    We are about to take the IOWA test. I don't know what this is for kindergarten. They have study guides for the other grades, but not K. Anyone else take this?

    IOWA is a standardized test that has norm reference. The test can be administered anywhere but the results are compared to a national average. In Florida we administer the SAT, as in stanford achievement test, and also the FCAT the Florida comprehensive assessment test. IOWA is ANOTHER test and I have only administered it to first grade. The kindergarteners took a test called the Metropolitan. (I suppose you could do a search on the internet for IOWA test. I will try later for you with more time...)
