Parent Feedback
Many parents use this test as a tool to measure their child’s progress as well as to plan their upcoming school year.

Familiarization With Testing
The second reason to test would be to familiarize your students with standardized testing. This will better prepare them when taking the PSAT, SAT, and ACT if they decide to apply for college. This is also helpful if you have children with test anxiety as it gives them opportunities to work through this fear.

Acceptance Into The Home School National Honor Society
The third reason would be for qualification for some organization or club. The Stanford Achievement Test is an accepted test for entrance into the Home School National Honor Society. Our local chapter, Epsilon, is the leadership group of the CHATA service organization through the HEART homeschool group (homeschool-life.com/506/signup). There are possibly other organizations like this that might require testing.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Karen Griswold karengriswold@homerunministries.com.
