Prepare Your Child
Home taught children that are not prepared for their yearly standardized tests are at a distinct disadvantage to government- and privately-taught children. If you reside in a state that requires standardized tests you should know that a vast majority of certified teachers 'teach for the test.' In other words, knowing the types of questions that will appear on the standardized tests, they will spend the weeks preceding the tests covering the necessary information. If you do not do likewise, your children stand a chance of performing poorly in comparison.
For those of us in a state where some form of testing is required, but never scrutinized, preparing is not as critical. But for those of you in states where the test results are not only analyzed but are used as a basis for whether you may continue to home educate, why not make sure your children are 'playing on a level playing field?' Spectrum Test Practice offers students the essential groundwork needed to prepare for standardized tests.
Using current information in keeping with the ever-evolving tests Spectrum Test Practice offers children a comprehensive and sequential way to practice the content areas offered on the following standardized tests: the California Achievement Tests® (CAT/5), the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS/4), the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills® (ITBS, Form K), the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT/7), and the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT/9). The up-to-date content reflects national standards and includes practice tests in the following subject areas: reading, language arts and math. Clear instructions and an answer key are included, plus bonus online pages for customized practice aligned to your state and your child’s grade level. Help your children to face the tests with the same confidence that their peers will have.
My state requires end of year testing. This gets the practice in that my daughter needs without being overly busy.
I like this because it practices standardized tests while letting me know my daughter is learning what she needs to in order to keep up with her pubic school peers.
We have not taken this assessment quite yet, but I like that this is included so that as a parent I know what was mastered and what we may need to work on for next year. This is our first year and this gives us some accountability as well.
We do not start state testing until 3rd grade, but this book is great to help relieve some of the nervousness that comes with taking a test.
This book was helpful for me to see what we needed more work on.
