Individual Standardized Achievement Testing

Individual standardized achievement testing is useful when children are being taught in unique, one-on-one situations. Test administrators meet and establish a rapport with your child, and evaluate academic levels in specific subject areas.

Tests can be administered in your home or at a central location. Written results are available within a week. Follow-up appointments provide an opportunity to discuss observations made during the test, curriculum choices, and other pertinent educational topics.
