WHY TEST?

  • To establish present levels of performance so that you can measure your child’s progress or to determine whether there has been sufficient progress.

  • To objectively evaluate the child against predetermined criteria, such as end-of-the course testing.

  • To compare your child’s performance against a larger group of children with similar characteristics at a similar age.

  • To screen for learning problems so that more specialized testing may be done to pinpoint remedial treatments more precisely.

  • To diagnose specific kinds of learning problems.

  • To determine a child’s overall ability levels, both intelligence levels and aptitudes.

  • To learn more about specific learning styles so you can tailor instruction effectively.

  • To help you effectively plan instruction based on the child’s performance to date
