    for all ITBS-takers in all grade levels makes me feel worse about it, not better.

    I probably got a few grade levels worth of score jump on the Reading sections based on having really detailed memories.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.

    •  Tests developed for different grades would be (0+ / 0-)

      entirely different. Sorry if I didn't make that clear. At a specific grade level only the field test items differ among forms. ITBS essays would almost certainly differ by grade level, but I can't state that as a fact. Hope that helps.

      •  They don't. (0+ / 0-)

        Same essays, third through sixth when I took it in the '90s.

        2+2 was even the same question each time in one of the math sections - that one I mentally tracked because having it in the middle of much more advanced arithmetic problems seemed so insulting.

        Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
