Standardized Testing Service for Homeschoolers

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, online testing results will be forwarded upon receipt from Terra Nova. 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 paper 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.

Email testing@villagehome.org with questions.

 

What to bring to the test session: sharpened pencils, simple calculator (for grades 5 & up), water, and a book to read.
