Welcome to Testing & Evaluation
Let’s Get Started!

You don’t have to dread testing. We’re here to make it easy for you!

Choose between online testing and paper and pencil tests. Printed practice tests are available for either option.

Online testing (with Iowa Assessments™ Form E)

  1. Steps:
    1. Start with the system check  .
    2. Choose a test level and test date.
    3. Place your order.
    4. Check your inbox. Information for downloading the secure browser, logging in, and more will be coming after you order.
  2. Benefits:
    1. We provide an approved tester. You won’t need to search for someone who meets publisher requirements.
    2. You’ll get faster results. Online testing customers get results in 5–7 days.
    3. No shipping. There are no materials to wait for and nothing to ship back. Once you’ve completed the assessments, you’re done. You only need to wait for the scores.

Paper and pencil testing

  1. Steps:
    1. Choose a test series.
      1. Stanford (© 2003): untimed tests with some limitations on grade levels that can be tested together.
      2. Iowa Assessments (© 2012): timed tests with fewer limitations on grade levels that can be tested together and has newer content, giving more precise results.
      3. Both have an option to add a learning-abilities companion test, either with the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test® (OLSAT) or the Cognitive Abilities Test™ (CogAT®).
    2. Find or become an approved tester. Search our Test Administrator Directory and coordinate with a pre-approved tester in your area; or apply to become a test administrator.
    3. Place your order.
      1. Test materials ship to your tester about 2 weeks ahead of the test date.
      2. Order 4 weeks ahead to take advantage of free ground shipping.
    4. Have test administered. Make sure the roster is signed.
    5. Return materials.
  2. Benefits:
    1. This method can be more accessible for those with limited computer access.
    2. We allow accommodations for students with diagnosed needs.

Check your scores online.

  1. You will get an email when results are available online. We will post scores electronically for all forms of achievement and abilities testing.
  2. Scores are ready 10 business days after we receive your materials.* (Online testing results take less time.)

*Please allow an extra 2 weeks during May and June due to high volume.
