Who can Participate: Any homeschooled children 3rd grade through 12th grade. You don't have to be a member of the support group who is providing the testing location.
How to Register:
Just send in the form below. You can register in our online store by clicking on "Enter Store". You can also just show up at the test site, although the cost is $5 more ($35 instead of $30). We expect to have lots of extra room and lots of extra tests at every test site. Please try to show up at 9:00 (a half hour early) so that we have time to process your registration.
You can find the directions to the test site by clicking on the location in the list above.
How Can I Prepare My Child? If you wish to prepare your child you can order the Scoring High on the TerraNova CTBS test preparation materials. Level 2 is for 3rd grade in the fall, Level 4 is for 5th, Level 7 is for 8th.
The cost is $16.95 plus tax for student workbooks, $19.95 plus tax for used teachers' manuals (must be purchased from our online store), and $34.95 plus tax for new teacher's manuals.
This will be the last year that we will buy back used Teachers Guides (for $10 each at the test sites). Since next year will be our last fall testing year, we won't be buying back used Teachers' Guides after this year.
Once you get these workbooks, you will just need to work on Units 1 and 3, since we are not doing the Unit 2 “Basic Skills” subtests. You will definitely need the Teacher’s Guide if you use Level 2 since many of the questions are read aloud to younger students and do not appear in the student book.
Out of Level Testing Option.If your child is either working above or below grade level, we allow out-of-level testing. Instead of putting his or her actual grade level under “GRADE” when you register, put the grade level of work that he or she is now beginning. Then at the door, ask us to norm the test for the child’s actual grade as well.
