Q. What is the latest I should test? I want to make sure we finish all the material before testing.
A. I would suggest completing end-of-year tests no later than June. Once the test is mailed, you have no control over the mail service or the time it will take for the testing company to score your child’s test. It is not necessary to cover all the material for a child to score well on a standardized achievement test. Many students in public and private schools do not complete their textbooks, and your student’s progress is compared to those who may also not have completed a full year’s work.
