Standardized Testing for homeschool students will take place in late spring. We use the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS). Students can take the core or complete composite. The core composite subjects include reading, math, written expression, vocabulary, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. The complete composite includes science and social studies in addition to the core subjects. Testing is typically two or three days for 3-5 hours each day, depending on which test is administered. Cost is $150 per student for the complete composite or $130 for the core composite, which includes all testing materials, shipping and scoring fees, and electronic testing results. Testing results are typically emailed 3-6 weeks after testing.
