Parent Resource Kit
As a parent we understand that you may have some questions regarding the different test types we offer, what preparation your child can do before the testing date, what your child needs the day of testing, and how to interpret the results after the test is taken.
We are here to provide you with that information to make the testing season as pleasant for your family as we can. There are a variety of ways your child can test, depending on their needs.
We offer two tests - the CTP and Stanford-10. Both of these tests are nationally normed.
On-site testing - Here, your child will go to a location and test with a group of students. We recommend this for junior high students and high school students so they can be better prepared for the college entrance exams. It is available for any age 1st - 10th. Please use our MAP to find a CTP4 testing location near you.
On-site testing - Here, your child will go to a location and test with a group of students. We recommend this for junior high students and high school students so they can be better prepared for the college entrance exams. It is available for any age K-12. Please use our MAP to find a Stanford-10 testing location near you.
At home testing - Here is a new testing experience beginning in 2018. You are able to order a paper/pencil test and it will be mailed to your home. You will have ten days to complete the test and return it back to us so it can be scored.
Online testing - Here your child will test on their computer in the comforts of their 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.

WHAT THEY CAN BRING TO THE TEST
Do you remember taking tests? We have all been tested in a variety of ways in our lives. From our beliefs to a paper/pencil task, all tests help us grow. While there are physical things to bring, there are also metal aspects to testing. We hope your child will bring everything they need to make it successful.
Non - physical things to bring: A good attitude, Positive self talk, A good night sleep, Hearty breakfast in the stomach
Physical things to bring: Pencil, Ruler, Lunch/Snack, Water, Registration form
HOW TO READ/GET RESULTS
Results of a test are more than what the paper/pencil information shows. There is depth that tests cannot show. There are also personal circumstances that can effect the very being of who we are. Learning differences and attitudes can all have a variance on the score. You know your child best. Do not let the scores define then as a student or you as a parent. Use it as a tool to learn more about them and build that relationship so you can help them in areas where they may be struggling.
