Achievement Tests | BJU Press Testing & Evaluation

Both home educators and traditional educators can use achievement tests to compare test scores with other students’ test scores, reveal possible academic strengths and weaknesses, and assess your students’ reasoning skills and knowledge of concepts and subject matter taught at their grade level.

BJU Press Testing & Evaluation provides only the most reliable achievement tests, including the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT 10) and The Iowa Tests® (ITBS®/ITED®) and their corresponding abilities tests (OLSAT® and CogAT®). These are nationally-normed, standardized achievement tests that are available for both homeschoolers and private schools year-round.

Homeschools, get started in 5 easy steps

  1. Determine your test administrator
    You or another individual will need to become the test administrator. The publishers of both the Stanford 10 and ITBS/ITED require that testers become approved by submitting an online application. If you would like to find a tester in your area, you can search for one in our Tester Locator.
