Hello All-

We will be offering standardized testing at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, in Tannersville, again this year. February 27th is the last day to order your
test through Bob Jones in order for it to arrive in time for our scheduled testing dates of March 30-April 1. (Tests ordered after February 27th may incur rush shipping charges.)

You must contact Bob Jones directly to order your test at www.bjupress.com. (OrderLink: http://www.bjupress.com/category/iowa-tests-homeschools)

Before you order your test, you will need to pre-register, so that we may ensure that we have received the correct testing information for your student. It is extremely important that you use the attached registration form so that we have all of the necessary information. You may copy and paste the info into an email.

The deadline for PRE-registering with us is February 23rd. PLEASE PUT “IOWA TEST REGISTRATION” AS THE SUBJECT IN ALL EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE, SO IT IS NOT OVERLOOKED! We understand that homeschool schedules can be very full. However, we encourage you to make it a priority to register on or before the deadline. Late registrations will not be accepted.

The testing fee is a nominal $20 per family. We will guarantee testing for grades 3-8. If we have sufficient interest and testers, we will offer testing for second graders (LEVEL 8) and high school students. Please let us know a.s.a.p. if you would like to test your 2nd grader or high school student.

As always, we are looking to expand our pool of eligible testers! If you would like to serve our home school community through testing, and you meet the requirements to be a certified tester, please contact Deb at debmont@verizon.net. (See requirements at end of email.)
Please remember that this is a ministry designed to meet the testing needs of our homeschooling community. It is a service that affords families access to testing at a nominal cost, and provides a comfortable, loving and (over the years) familiar atmosphere in which our youngsters can test. These are all factors that can have an impact on a student’s test performance.

If you meet the qualifications, please consider joining us as a tester/administrator for this year. There is a small stipend for your time. Please contact Deb at debmont@verizon.net to confirm commitment and for further information on how to register with BJU as a tester. Thank you, in advance, for offering to share your talents with the group!

Please refer to the attachment for additional testing information and the Registration Form. All information requested is necessary for verification, so please make sure you have included everything requested in your email.

If you have any questions, please contact me at
debmont@verizon.net

We look forward to another successful testing year!

In His Service,

Deb Esposito
Testing Coordinator

Webinar free: “Understanding Evaluations”

Here’s a reminder about the free “Understanding Evaluations” webinar next Wednesday, February 18!

For those of you who are fellow homeschoolers, the word “evaluation” probably brings to mind portfolio reviews at the end of the school year. That is not the topic of this webinar. “Understanding Evaluations” is about deciphering the results of assessments by health professionals that you may have set up for your child who has special needs, to help determine need and eligibility for certain services, such as speech therapy or occupational therapy for fine motor skills. Basically, how to get the help you may need for your child.

These Webinars are interactive, so you can ask a question and have it addressed during the session and exchange ideas. Or, as with the others, you can view the session when it is available in the archives about two weeks after the live session takes place.
“WEBINAR Wednesday” – FEBRUARY 18
