A Clear Picture of Academic Potential

An innovative cognitive abilities assessment, InView™ comprises five tests that reliably measure skills and abilities important for academic success. Use InView results to help plan effective programs for your students, diagnose possible learning disabilities, and screen students for placement into special programs. InView was standardized to include students with disabilities and to provide age- and grade-appropriate normative data. When used with TerraNova, InView provides Anticipated Achievement scores—i.e., actual and expected scores for individual students and groups. Compare your students’ achievement with that of other students of the same age, grade, and ability.

InView tests:

  • Verbal Reasoning: Words
  • Verbal Reasoning: Context
  • Sequences
  • Analogies
  • Quantitative Reasoning

Tests present students with innovative items that assess skills such as understanding verbal and quantitative concepts and analyzing and comprehending relationships between verbal and nonverbal stimuli.

Using InView you gain:

  • An accurate and reliable measure of inductive and deductive reasoning processes—abilities crucial for academic success
  • A valuable measure of quantitative reasoning, not reliant on math questions and free of gender bias
  • Insightful information about student skills that are valid predictors of student academic success
  • The ability to identify students for placement in the most appropriate learning programs
  • The ability to translate aptitude into academic success

Cognitive Skills Index (CSI) scores from InView provide a highly reliable measure of overall academic aptitude—valuable information for guidance, activities planning, and special program identification.

  • Anticipated Achievement scores allow you to determine if a student is working at, above or below their abilities and whether or not instructional strategies are effective.
  • These scores are a powerful tool. Use them to improve instruction, address specific student strengths and needs, and provide valuable information for parent-teacher conferences.
