Next Meeting: What to Know about Standardized Testing for Homeschoolers


This month’s meeting will focus on the standardized testing requirement for homeschoolers. We’ll discuss the law and its requirement along with many other aspects of testing our kids.

Discussion on Testing: When, Where, How, & What’s Best for My Child?


We’ll answer questions like:

  • When should I start testing my student?
  • What tests are available?
  • Who can administer the test?
  • What is the difference between the tests we can give?
  • How do I know which test is best for my child?
  • What is the best testing situation for my child?
  • How do I prepare my child for testing?
  • Should I test before 4th grade?
  • Is it better to test with the group?

Ithaca LEAH offers a standardized test in a group setting for our members. Learn what the test is like and how the days are formatted. We’ll talk about how to get set up for doing that and you’ll know whether it’s a good environment for your child.

As an educator, I have proctored the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) both as a teacher in public school classrooms and as one of the adults helping with the Ithaca LEAH test days. The topic of assessment is near and dear to my heart because it was a concentration of mine in graduate school.

My goal with this meeting is to help homeschooling parents to be informed about their options and to help avoid unnecessary anxiety for kids and their moms during the testing process.


Learn whether or not the group testing is a good option for your family and what your alternatives are if you feel it’s not.

Come Join Us for Our Meeting on January 27, 2015


All are welcome! Come share with us your testing experiences as a veteran homeschooler and if you are new to homeschooling and/or are approaching the testing age, this is a great time to learn about what’s ahead!
