NC requires annual standardized testing for homeschooled students. Which test shall I choose? What are the differences in all the tests? Is one better than the others? What do the results mean? Can my child fail? We will cover all the major testing options, the differences in the tests, the pros and cons of each, getting info from the results, as well as tips for preparing your children for testing in order to equip you to make the best choice for your family. Note: This is not about the college tests (SAT, ACT) but the testing required by NC law.
