Bannockburn Christian Academy is offering achievement testing services to home schooled students in grades 1-8 this coming April 2017. The achievement test to be used is the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) Form C, which is the latest edition of this nationally recognized achievement test. Testing will occur April 25-28, 2017. Students will begin at 9:00 am each morning and test from between one hour and two hours per day depending upon the grade level. There are 12 tests for grades 1 & 2, and 16 tests for grades 3-8 in the complete test battery. The cost is $55 per child. The test will be scored by the Riverside Publishing Scoring Services and parents will receive a scoring report of their child’s results.
Home Schooled parents can register their child for testing by completing the online registration form and paying the $55 testing fee by March 17th. The $55 is non-refundable since testing materials will be ordered soon after the registration deadline. The online system accepts major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, etc), or electronic checks.

Parents of registered students will receive a schedule of testing dates, times, and locations during the first week of April. Test proctors will be qualified and trained in test administration. The testing coordinator who will establish the testing schedule and manage the testing and scoring is a certified Texas school teacher.
