We understand the need for healthy assessment when it comes to personal growth, and we want to provide families around the world the opportunity to test, assess, and strengthen their children in the classroom and throughout life.

Testing Events and What to Expect

ON-SITE TESTING

Interested in On-Site Testing? Click HERE to browse the collection and find your test. 

Onsite testing is a unique opportunity for you and your child to experience testing in a classroom situation.  There are few occasions for homeschoolers to learn about this experience, so this gives them that chance. 

In this environment  your child will go to a testing location and meet with a group of students. We recommend this for junior high and high school students so they can be better prepared for the college entrance exams. The Stanford-10 is available for any age K-12th and the CTP is available 1st-10th.

The Stanford-10 National Achievement Test is a nationally-recognized test used by educators across the United States, particularly in private schools and homeschools. As a norm-referenced test, the Stanford-10 not only offers the home educator information on their student’s achievement, it also provides comparisons based on nationwide test results.The first version of the Stanford Achievement series was published in 1926. Its history and academic excellence has earned its acceptance as a nationally normed achievement test and meets most states’ testing requirements.

We offer the Unabbreviated Stanford Achievement Test, Tenth Edition for K-12th grades. For K-3rd grade we use the Form A (traditional language section) for 4th-12th grades we use Form D (comprehensive language section). (We offer the Stanford 10 Abbreviated Version in select areas).

This is a new testing experience beginning in 2018. You now have the ability to take the Stanford-10 National Achievement Test at home. The parent does not have to have the B.A. in order to administer the At Home test. This is the same nationally-recognized test used in the On-site testing we offer. As a norm-referenced test, the Stanford-10 not only offers the home educator information on their student’s achievement, it also provides comparisons based on nationwide test results. The first version of the Stanford Achievement series was published in 1926. Its history and academic excellence has earned its acceptance as a nationally normed achievement test and meets most states’ testing requirements.

Please note: If you purchase the At Home test before March 1st, it will not be shipped until after March 1st. 

ONLINE TESTING

Does your child work best from home?  Are they still young and needing more one on one attention?  Do you have scheduling conflicts with your local testing site? Do you live in a rural area and onsite testing is not available?  Or you just prefer to test at home?  Then this test will be perfect for you!

Here, your child will test on their computer in the comforts of your own home. They will call in to a conference call where a proctor will read the directions to them. They will then be able to take the test. 

Online testing opportunities are offered for students who prefer not to test at a physical location, or who can’t get to a physical location. Online testing is for grades 3–12, is proctored, and includes the same Stanford-10 components as the physical test for the level you choose.  The online version does not have a listening section.

The Stanford-10 National Achievement Test is a nationally-recognized test used by educators across the United States, particularly in private schools and home schools. As a norm-referenced test, the Stanford-10 not only offers the home educator information on their student’s achievement, it also provides comparisons based on nationwide test results. The first version of the Stanford Achievement series was published in 1926, and the Stanford-10 online version was introduced in 2012. Its rich history and academic excellence has earned its acceptance as a nationally normed achievement test across the nation and meets most state’s testing requirements.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT THE DAY OF TESTING

The week before testing, you should receive an email from your coordinator giving you all the details you need to know.  If there are any questions you may have, contact her and she'll be able to help you.

The number of registrants will determine how the coordinator will organize the day.  Obviously, a testing event with 100 students will have different expectations than a testing event with 25 students.  

You may have to check your child in so they know they're there. 

Someone may be there to direct you the the classroom where testing will take place. If it's a smaller venue, signs may be on the doors.  Again, the coordinator has the freedom to meet the needs of the facility.

Once your child is in their room and settled, parents are not allowed back into the classroom until testing is complete. 

Scratch paper will be provided, and experienced and well-qualified proctors will guide your student through each section of the test you have selected.

When it’s all over, consider going for ice cream!
