CHEA is working with BJU Press Homeschool, Family Protection Ministries (FPM), and NHERI (National Home Education Research Institute) to gather enough state-specific data for our own set of research. This has never been done before and it is critically needed as we prepare for the next legislative season. We need to have at least 200 students from California participate in testing before the end of August in order to have enough data. Please consider utilizing BJU Testing & Evaluation for your year-end testing needs to help homeschool research in California.
With the 2020 standardized testing season upon us, BJU Press can provide a more convenient testing experience for CHEA families. BJU Press Testing & Evaluation has been working with homeschool families for over 30 years, making them the most experienced and trusted provider of standardized testing. They know the process, and they are ready to help you through every step. Their service doesn't stop even when the tests are graded. Just call in, and they will help you understand the results—including how you can use the scores to help your child.
And BJU Press Testing & Evaluation is making achievement testing better than ever through online testing on your Mac or Windows computer, iPad, or Chromebook. With faster results (within five to seven days), no shipping costs to pay, and a test administrator provided, the benefits will seem endless. And testing at home will save you traveling and daycare costs!
We have partnered with BJU Press to offer the Iowa Assessments™. The Iowa Assessments achievement test can be used to test your student’s knowledge of facts, basic skills and concepts common to a specific grade tested. It will also assess year-to-year progress in your students’ learning. The Cognitive Abilities Test™ (CogAT®) measures your student’s logical thinking ability in correlation with the achievement test. Using the CogAT and the Iowa Assessments together can help boost future test scores and identify students’ needs.
