State Required Testing

Just wanted to post a quick note to all of the local homeschooling moms who may read my blog. As I am sure you are aware, our state requires that a student (homeschooled or public) take an annual test that meets state requirements. This test cannot be given just by anyone. The administrator needs to meet strict guidelines governed by our state. I, in my pregnant delirium, just about forgot to get this in order. However, I was able to locate a facility that is currently taking registrations for testing scheduled at the end of May. I don't feel comfortable handing out the personal contact info. of this coordinator over the blog, so if you are interested please contact me via email, or phone (prior to May 12th) and I will give you the phone number. Keep in mind, it is a state requirement that your child undergoes testing (I think by the age of eight is when they need to begin testing every year, but may be wrong). I would strongly encourage you to follow through and adhere to the law.

I am also an approved tester for the Iowa Achievement Test and the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT). If I can help anybody do their testing, this year, I am happy to do so.

Yes, I am so thankful to have gotten ours done for the year. The state requires that the testing begin when the child is 8 years old. I agree, as Christians it is important that we adhere to the law. I found out the Mrs. Green is also certified to administer the testing also. She is certified in 3 tests, but not the SAT - I believe. Thank you, Rebekah for testing Josiah for me!
