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 referring 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.

Tests approved by the state board of education. The SBE doesn’t want to field 10,000 homeschool family’s questions about testing, so they ruled that if Buros (https://marketplace.unl.edu/buros/) has reviewed it, it’s a-okay with them. There are (pretty literally) no tests you can purchase as a parent that haven’t been reviewed by Buros. (There’s really only about a half dozen standardized achievement tests out there available to homeschool parents anyway).

Here is a centralized listing of available major standardized testing dates which are only given on certain dates throughout the year. http://www.testdatescentral.com/
