I.T.B.S. is a norm-referenced test. Georgia law mandates that a nationally norm-referenced test, such as the ITBS, be administered annually to students in grades three, five, and eight.

The purpose of a norm-referenced test is to obtain information about the performance of Georgia's students and compare it with that of students in a national sample.

The results are used for evaluation, decision-making, and instructional improvement.

Also, It is a pre-qualifier for TAG students.

CCGPS Units are taught thematically. Students will read for Information, read for Literature, and develop their writing skills.
Students will continuously develop their skills for listening and speaking, reading foundational skills, and language.

Teachers use varied literature, fiction, non-fiction, drama, poetry, fables, folktales, myths and supplemental resources.
