The Iowa Assessments, Form E (K-12)

Measures student achievement and growth across the subjects of reading, vocabulary, word analysis, listening comprehension, mathematics, computation, science, and social studies. The efficient test design and powerful reporting cut down on testing time but provide you with more information about your student’s abilities compared to students nationally. This is an excellent option if you are interested in:

  • Two administration options:

      • Online administration, proctored remotely by MSTP

      • Paper administration by a proctor who is not a parent/guardian.

  • Comparing your student’s achievement (Iowa Form E) to their abilities (CogAT 7). The online CogAT 7 will be offered for the first time to homeschools soon.

Stanford Achievement Test Series

Measures student achievement across the subjects of reading, mathematics, language, spelling, listening comprehension, science, and social science. Available for Minnesota homeschools only. This option may work for you if you prefer:

  • Most recent norms

  • Flexible administration options (no time limits and parent and guardian can proctor)

  • Simple reporting to quickly determine if your student’s performance is above average, average, or below average using national stanines (a standardized 9-point scale).
