Why Test

There are many benefits to testing your homeschooled child!

  1.  For many families, a nationally normed, standardized test score is the simplest method
    for providing the required evidence of achievement each year.
  2. Testing provides a measure for you to know how effectively your teaching methods work
    with your child
  3. You can you use the results to adjust your curriculum and teaching style.
  4. Your child learns test-taking skills such as following directions, relaxing under pressure,
    pacing oneself, and more.
  5. Testing provides a benchmark to show how you child compares to other children at his or
    her grade level.
