Homeschool Achievement Testing Services From Royal Academy Education
Homeschool Achievement testing is used as a way to measure the development of skills & knowledge level. Such tests are standardized to determine the grade level of learning achieved through planned instruction.
Often seen as a threat, achievement testing is just one assessment tool that helps determine direction in a student’s education. Testing is administered one-on-one with a specially trained member of our staff working with your student. Achievement tests, diagnostic academic area testing, special needs testing, and individualized assessments are available. Career preparation evaluations are available for students and adults.
Nationally normed individual standardized achievement tests are administered with written results prepared by the same professional test administrator. Parents are encouraged to take the time to review the results with the administrator, ensuring a personal and customized approach to the discussion . Areas covered include observations made during the testing appointment, possible curriculum choices, and other topics of concern to the parents.
Academic Achievement Testing by a Certified / Competent Administrator
Royal Academy offers four options:
- Kaufman Test of Educational Achievement – lII
- Peabody Individual Achievement Test, Revised
- Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Educational Achievement – IV
- Diagnostic Achievement Battery-2.
Results can be mailed to your home within the week of testing, or you may meet with the administrator professional to discuss test results and educational recommendations. Each of our test administrators are Certified, Masters Level Educated Professionals, quite competent in administering and qualifying results.
Achievement Testing On Site at Your Location
We are often asked to schedule on-site testing at Homeschool Conferences throughout the country. In special circumstances, we will conduct these tests in your home. Large homeschool groups contract us to travel to their state and conduct individual standardized testing, consultations, and workshops.
