Hewitt Homeschooling Resources offers an Achievement Test designed specifically for homeschool parents and students. It is an untimed, parent-administered test for grades 3 - 8 that reduces test-taking stress for your child and can provide you with test results that will allow you to customize your child's education for their achievement level. Additionally, the PASS Test is a standardized test comparable to the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) or Iowa Test (ITBS,) qualifying it for your state's testing requirements. You can visit our FAQs page for a comprehensive overview of our testing resource.
Exploring Families is organizing a group test order that allows us to get the tests at a discounted group rate. We will be coordinating the payment, ordering, distribution, and return shipment of tests, and distributing the test results when they come back. Exploring Families will never view your student's test results or share the results with anyone, other than the parent(s) who ordered the test.
"It is a standardized achievement test, and it has been reviewed by Buros, which are the qualifications for the annual testing. Throw in that it's 'local' (Washougal), and their dual percentile system (one against public school students, one against homeschool students) -- and what's not to like?" - Jen Garrison Stuber, Washington Homeschool Organization's Advocacy Chair and Parent Qualifying Course teacher.
