Standardized Testing Administration Registration Deadline April 1

According to the GDOE : "Students in home study programs shall be subject to an appropriate nationally standardized testing program administered in consultation with a person trained in the administration and interpretation of norm referenced tests. The student must be evaluated at least every three years beginning at the end of the third grade. Records of such tests shall be retained."

To aid home school parents in the administration of this test South Cobb Homeschoolers in conjunction with The Study Hall Education Consulting Company will be administering the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS)  April 25-27, 2016 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  for students in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade at 4181 Atlanta St, Powder Springs, GA 30127.
