Using the Weschler Individual Achievement Test, 3rd Edition (WIAT-III), a nationally recognized, standardized test tool, children are assessed in the basic areas of reading, writing, math, and oral language. The WIAT-III minimizes testing time while maximizing information that can be obtained from each student. Each child answers questions beginning at a level appropriate for their age or ability and continues to answer progressively harder questions.

Unlike group standardized tests, such as the Iowa Test of Basic Skills or the Terra Nova, the WIAT-III allows even a 1st grader to answer some high school level questions, if they are able to achieve that high. Find out more about the differences between the individualized WIAT-III and group achievement testing.

Option #1: $150

Option One includes the administration of ONLY the reading, writing, and math subtests and a copy of a basic score sheet. The score report is generally mailed out to parents within 72 hours of testing. Option One is appropriate for families who need to submit achievement test results as part of their state compliance requirement.

Option #2: $275

Option Two includes the cost of full test administration and a copy of a basic score sheeet. The score report is generally mailed out to parents within 72 hours of testing. Option Two is appropriate for families who prefer a more comprehensive picture of their child's current level of achievement, but do not need a complete narrative report to understand the results.

Option #3: $400

Option Three covers the cost of test administration and a formal written test report, which includes the basic score sheet, an error analysis, and a discussion of the child's strengths and weaknesses. The test report is generally mailed out to parents with 14 business days of testing. Parents have the option of following up with a telephone consultation for any additional questions they may have.

Hand In Hand keeps in mind that most homeschool children have little or no experience with standardized testing. We maintain a maximum level of test environment integrity while making the experience a comfortable one for the childn. Our most important priority is obtaining valid results that will help you, the parent, make the best homeschooling decisions possible; while helping your child feel good about themselves.

As always, test results are kept completely confidential. Parents are the only ones to receive a complete score analysis of their child's performance. It is left to a parent's discretion whether or not they share the results with their county or umbrella reviewer.

Hand In Hand's test evaluator has been fully trained in educational test administration and interpretation of results at Johns Hopkins University. Contact us today to schedule your testing appointment.
