Stanford Achievement Testing - 2010-2011 - sign up

It's time to think about testing for the 2010 - 2011 school year. We will be using the same test as we have in years past, the tenth edition of the Stanford Achievement Test. This is a Christian-based academic test for grades K - 12. In addition to the core subjects, the test also includes a Bible assessment subtest and an Otis-Lennon (OLSAT) test. The OLSAT is for grades 3, 5, 7 and 10 and is an ability/reasoning type test that compares the student's results to other students in that grade. A rating will then be applied and this enables the parent to identify a skill area in need of additional attention.

We will test in April of 2011. Testing is a Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. A date and location will be decided at a later time. The cost to test is $30 per child testing and is non-refundable. Should you decide to test, please be aware that a helping parent (one required per family testing) will need to be available to work two out of the four days that we test.

Attached is the SAT order form. Please fill it out and send it to Rhonda Gaskin. Since I am sending this out later than normal, I am extending the deadline to the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Because I will need to compile the orders and get them mailed in early December, I will not be able to accept orders after November 27, 2010.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
