Nationally-Normed Standardized Test
Standardized Testing can be intimidating to Homeschool parents and students! Stress no more! True North Homeschool Academy offers state of the art standardized testing through Scantron’s Performance Series tests.
- We offer Reading, Reading Foundation, Math and Language Arts, Algebra, and Geometry tests for grades K-12.
- Tests can be taken in the privacy of your own home and can be re-taken more than once throughout the school year.
- Delivered online, accessible through a computer convenient to you, the test is private and secure. Your student can go at their own pace, learning testing skills without suffering test anxiety. Tests can be “paused” and re-engaged, allowing students to gain testing skills, score well, and gain confidence!
- Another unique feature of the test is that it will continue to test the student in the subject matter, as long as your student can answer correctly, so you get an accurate read on what your student knows.
- Test with us yearly, and your test scores will save, giving you a clear graphic of how your student is doing. Perfect for evaluating the effectiveness of curriculum and catching processing or learning disabilities.
- Parents will receive a complete PDF copy of test results, including Lexile Reading Score. A short, personalized test interpretation is included with the test results to show how your child is progressing clearly. We offer this as a free service, but parents can choose not to utilize this.
- Testing no longer has to be intimidating!
- These tests can be submitted for state standardized testing requirements and taken more than once throughout the school year at no extra cost.
- While the test is Common Core aligned, this information is used as a “guide” in the personalized test interpretation to know what skills your child has mastered and what they should work on next! (Please note that not all curricula are Common Core Aligned, and we will discuss in your Personalized Test Interpretation whether specific skills have been addressed in your child’s curriculum being used. True North Homeschool Academy is not a Common Core Aligned school.
