MSTP Can Help You Meet the MN Homeschool Testing Requirement
Minnesota homeschools are required to annually administer a nationally normed achievement test for each student age 7-17.
Only accredited homeschools are exempt from this requirement. A nationally normed achievement test compares students’ performance to other students in the same grade across the nation. MSTP offers two options that meet Minnesota's requirement, as well as additional assessments. Get started by choosing the assessment.
If you have not yet informed your district that you are homeschooling, please visit the Minnesota Department of Education website for more information. You must indicate your selected assessment on their intent to homeschool forms.
Step 1 - Choose your Assessment
Our office offers the Iowa Assessments and the Stanford Achievement Test Series.
Both assessments meet the Minnesota yearly testing requirement. Note: The Stanford is available to Minnesota residents only.
