Homeschool Standardized Testing Services

 

Village Home offers Homeschool Testing services in groups and individual private sessions. Oregon law requires standardized homeschool tests administered by a qualified test examiner after grades 3, 5, 8 and 10 by August 15. Tests can also provide feedback about how your learner is doing.

As a service to the homeschool community, Village Home is proud to offer the Terra Nova Test (formerly California Achievement Test CAT) for grades 3-12. The Terra Nova is one of the homeschool tests approved by the state of Oregon.

We offer a friendly, low-stress test environment that complies with Oregon testing requirements. Our paper and pencil tests are hand scored with results emailed within 2 weeks. Students bring water, a snack, simple calculator, and a book and will have a break during testing.

TEST RESULTS
Group and private testing fees include the standard test report: raw score, national percentile, and grade equivalent for each section of the test. For an additional $10 per test, a Diagnostic Profile breaks down responses by specific learning. If you want details about your child’s test performance, be sure to order your diagnostic profile.

What you need to know before you register:

There are required protocols to follow that you will be given instructions about. Test packets will be mailed in advance with clear instructions.  Disregard for Virtual Group Testing procedures will result in the invalidation of the test and test session, without refund. Please note, late check-ins to Virtual Group Testing sessions cannot be accommodated. The actual length of testing time varies. Parents must be nearby their learner taking the test during entire test session, and all learners must be in camera view for the entire allotted test time during Virtual Group Testing, except during their break(s).

Virtual Private Testing 2021

For parents who have concerns about their learner self-managing and following Test Proctor instructions in a timed, virtual group setting, or whose learner needs accommodations as allowed by law for their IEP or 504, we encourage registration in a Private Test. Learner accommodations cannot be made in group testing sessions.

Private Testing fee is $85 per child, additional child $42.50. For an additional $10 per child, a Diagnostic Profile breaks down responses by specific learning. Standard Private Testing time period is 3 hours; testing clients who require additional time beyond the 3 hours will be billed an additional $25 per hour.

Private Testing sessions are available every Thursday at 11:00 am and Saturday at 10:00 am. Registration closes 10 days before the week of private tests.
