HOW TO PROCURE STANDARDIZED TESTS FOR YOUR CHILD
We frequently receive inquiries regarding the testing of children for various purposes, including placement. OLVS prefers the older Iowa Basic Skills Tests, and we collaborate with Mrs. Sara T. Dunsford, of Phoenix, Arizona, in assessing and measuring OLVS students. These tests are intended for students who have completed at least grade 3, although younger children with advanced reading abilities may take the test as well. Ideally, the tests should be taken between the end of a school year and the beginning of the subsequent one, in order to validly measure progress from year to year. To have the tests sent to you, write to:
Sara T. Dunsford
914 E. Beth Drive
Phoenix, AZ 85042
Please include your full name, address, and phone number when requesting a test. The initial cost per test is $20, which includes $10 for the test fee, plus $10 as a refundable deposit (which will be refunded to you once the test has been returned to Mrs. Dunsford). If you wish to contact Mrs. Dunsford more quickly, her e-mail address is: email@example.com
Standardized Testing booklets are available for purchase in grades 2-8 for $10 each. Parents grade results at home with this option.
Help students do their best on standardized tests in reading, mathematics and language arts by familiarizing them with the formats and skills they need for success. Achieving Proficiency on Standardized Tests is organized into three units that provide detailed practice in each of these core subject areas. Each unit begins with an authentic bubble answer sheet to give students practice in a realistic test taking situation. All practice pages are based on the most recent editions of several widely used tests. Students are also exposed to a variety of testing formats that will improve their test taking skills. Grades 2-8.
