As an Educator, providing regular and appropriate assessments for your student is key to learning. This is the idea that drives our motto, "Healthy Assessment Strengthens Families."
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 encourage learning for their children. Homeschool Testing Services has served tens of thousands of educators over the past decade by distributing and administering nationally normed, standardized tests for home school families with students in grades K-12.
We started with the Stanford-10 Achievement Test, first as a paper-and-pencil test. We currently offer Online and At-Home testing. 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.
After much demand, we also offer the Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) Online. The CTP 5 Online version is the same as the print-only version, just online.
In Spring 2016, we began administering a second test, the print-only CTP published by Education Records Bureau. We are the first organization to provide the CTP for home school students after it being long recognized as a rigorous assessment in private schools. The most notable difference between CTP 5 and its predecessors is that CTP 5 contains new test questions with an increased emphasis on assessing critical thinking skills. The updated questions in CTP 5 subtests focus much more systematically on these skills. CTP 5 will also feature an increased number of high-level Depth of Knowledge (DOK) questions.
