InView on the TerraNova

By Inderbir Kaur Sandhu, Ph.D


Q: My daughter was in the 99% for math, reading and overall on the TerraNova. She received a 123 on the InView. Would she qualify for the gifted program? I obviously know her TerraNova scores were very good, but I don't know anything about the InView score. Can you tell me if 123 is good? Thanks!

A: Briefly, InView which is a nationally normed-referenced test, assesses cognitive skills that can map strengths, reveal hidden abilities (of what students are capable of doing) and point the way to new opportunities. Three critical cognitive abilities are tested in Verbal Reasoning, Nonverbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning.

The InView helps with critical screening and identification for student placement, gifted and talented, and other special programs and services. The Cognitive Skills Index (CSI) in InView is an age-based score that describes an individual's performance on InView as a whole. The score indicates a student's overall cognitive ability relative to students of similar age without regard to grade placement. An average Cognitive Skills Index score for InView would be 100.

Based on this your child has above average scores, however, usually for placement into gifted programmes, a score around 130 or thereabouts would be required. For a score of 123 (which indicates a high above average score), perhaps your daughter may do better in the mainstream programme. However, if you feel that she could have done much better and are able to make a case (i.e., show evidence of superior ability), you could always speak to the school authorities.

Hope that helps.
