An annual achievement testing is one method for home schoolers to have a pulse on how their children are doing academically. While testing is limited in measuring every child’s academic skills, it can be a helpful tool in the assessment process.
Tests may be tools for various purposes, such as, evaluating a student’s academic mastery, or rating a student for placement or financial purposes.
ACT, PSAT, and SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) tests are used primarily for college and university entrance, or financial aid, while others, such as, the IOWA Test of Basic Skills, the Stanford Achievement Test (also know as SAT), or the California Test of Basic Skills (CTBS), may be used for pass/fail or evaluation purposes.
