Test Providers in Washington State

The following groups/individuals have notified WHO that they offer standardized achievement tests and/or assessments. Inclusion in this list does not represent an endorsement by WHO, nor does it guarantee that the services offered by the following individuals meet the requirements of the law.

The law refering to annual testing, RCW28A.200.010 (3) states:

(3) Ensure that a standardized achievement test approved by the state board of education is administered annually to the child by a qualified individual or that an annual assessment of the student's academic progress is written by a certificated person who is currently working in the field of education. The state board of education shall not require these children to meet the student learning goals, master the essential academic learning requirements, to take the assessments, or to obtain a certificate of mastery pursuant to *RCW 28A.630.885 . The standardized test administered or the annual academic progress assessment written shall be made a part of the child's permanent records. If, as a result of the annual test or assessment, it is determined that the child is not making reasonable progress consistent with his or her age or stage of development, the parent shall make a good faith effort to remedy any deficiency.

Many support groups arrange group testing or maintain their own list of local test providers.
