This site has information regarding achievement testing in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee -- primarily for home schooling families.
In-person administration of the WJ IV is available in western North Carolina.
Do you have to test?
- North Carolina: Yes, from age 7 through graduation from the home school.
See North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education.
- South Carolina:
No, unless choosing to operate under Section 59-65-40, Option One where a state test is required.
Some home school associations may require testing as a condition of membership.
See South Carolina Department of Education.
Yes, at least every three years beginning at the end of the third grade.
See Georgia Department of Education.
Depending on the option under which home schooling occurs, testing may be required.
Independent Home Schools must test in grades 5, 7, and 9 coordinated with the local school district.
Home schools under a church-related umbrella school must follow the umbrella school's guidance.
See Tennessee Department of Education.
Should you test?
What test should you use?
- Yes, whether required or not, you should assess the progress that your students are making.
Already decided to use WJ IV, contacted Cindy, and now want to register?
- There are numerous "bubble-in" tests that will meet the requirement and provide a score than can be used to compare students.
- The Woodcock-Johnson IV is recommended to provide more information regarding a student's academic progress (and who wouldn't want that?).
