The Iowa Tests Form C makes understanding and applying your student's test scores easy and includes a Lexile® Measurement for Grades 1–12. A Common Core comparison is available, upon request, for students Grade 3 and above.

Some forms have restrictions in certain states. Please check our list of state restrictions for the most up-to-date information.
The Cognitive Abilities Test™ can be ordered separately or in combination with the Form C. However, there are restrictions for residents of certain states. (Learn more about CogAT®.) If you do live in a restricted area, please consider switching to the Stanford/OLSAT tests or postponing your abilities testing.
