Standardized Testing

TESTING--Stanford Achievement TestStanford Achievement Testing Deadline is Friday, November 20, 2009

The Stanford Achievement Test, a Christian-based academic test, will be offered to homeschool families in April 2010. The test includes the Otis Lennon--OLSAT-- for grades 3, 5, 7 and 10. OLSAT is an ability-type test and will compare the student's results of each subtest to other students with the same ability. This test gives parents the ability to identify a skill area in need of additional attention.

Each family who would like to have a child (or children) tested will need a parent to participate during the week of testing. This may be in the area of helping administer the tests or working in the nursery. A date and location will be announced at a later time.

Order forms have been sent out to all TEACH subscribers. Orders will be accepted on this form only. Payment will be due at the time of ordering. The cost is $30.00 per child testing. This fee includes the cost for mailing the results back to the parents. Checks are to be made payable to Rhonda Gaskin. The order form and payment must be received by Friday, November 20, 2009, and mailed to Rhonda at 2904 Atchison Circle, Lawrence, KS 66047. Checks will be cashed the week after Thanksgiving.

Order forms may be duplicated for a friend, but if so, please read the notice at the bottom of the order form.
