Become a Test Administrator

Renew Your Test Administrator Status Annually

Every year test administrators must update their tester profile by January 15 in order to remain active for that calendar year. (Follow the step-by-step instructions below.) We will send you an email reminding you of the deadline, so please make sure that we have your current email address on file. If your test administrator status has expired, you can reactivate your profile at any time.

How to update your profile

1Log in to your BJU Press Homeschool account and go to your tester profile.

Sign In and click My Account. Then review your Account Settings and Address Book to make sure these are up-to-date. Once you have reviewed these, click Test Administrator Profile on your My Account page.

2List and review your contact preferences.

Click the circle next to the contact option you prefer. Please read both options before making a selection.

If you administer tests for others, you will also need to fill in the contact methods that you prefer. At least one method will need to be listed.

When testing for other families, you should choose the first contact option. By choosing the second option, no one, other than those you list in your exceptions list, will be able to ship tests to you.

3Save your changes.

Click the Save Changes/Confirm Information button near the bottom of the page. You must click the button even if you have not made any changes.

4Set your Privacy Settings.

Note: You will only need to set your privacy settings if you administer tests for others.

Underneath the Save Changes button, there is a section entitled Address Privacy Settings. Here you need to set your privacy settings to public, limited, or private, for each address associated with your account. Only one address should be selected as public (available online in the Test Administrator Directory). If you have questions regarding privacy settings, visit our FAQs.

If you want to test others, you must indicate both that you are interested in administering tests for others (the first option in the Contact Preferences section), and assign the limited or public privacy setting to one of your addresses.

If you have chosen to administer only tests that you have ordered (the second option in the Contact Preferences section) and have added someone to your exception list, you will need to assign the limited privacy setting to one of your addresses. Otherwise, no one else (including those in your exception list) will be able to ship to you.

5Select your shipping address.

Choose one shipping address to be assigned to your tester profile. This address is where we will ship your testing materials, and it can have any privacy setting assigned to it.

You can assign a shipping address by clicking on the Change link next to an address listed in the Address Privacy Settings and by choosing either Ship tests to this address or by choosing another address from the drop-down menu.

Prepare for Testing

Preparing for The Iowa Tests®

As you look forward to your upcoming testing, this preliminary information may be helpful in planning your testing sessions:

BJU Press Testing & Evaluation is providing Forms C and E of The Iowa Tests®. Please remember that these forms cannot be administered together. We are also offering the CogAT® Form 6. The Iowa Tests® Form C can be used in combination with the CogAT® Form 6; however, it must be used separately if the Form E will be used.

  • Please read and follow our Checklist and Guidelines, a copy of which will be included with the materials and is also available on the Support page.
  • If you are testing multiple grades, remember that Grades 3–8 (Levels 9–14) may be tested together, and Grades 9–12 (Levels 15–18) may be tested together.
    • One copy of the directions will be sent automatically for each grade grouping ordered. Multiple orders going to the same tester may be shipped from our office together. If you plan to have more than one group of students within the same grade grouping test at the same time, you will want to request extra directions for that test when ordering.
      • If extra directions booklets are ordered separately from the tests, a minimum $3.99 shipping/handling fee applies.
      • Level 9 contains two extra subtests, Word Analysis and Listening, which are not contained in Levels 10–14. If you wish to administer these two subtests, they will need to be given separately from any other tests in Grades 3–8 and will require approximately 45 minutes of additional testing time.
      • A single test level (Level 17/18) is shared by students in Grades 11 and 12. The national trend is to take an achievement test during either Grade 11 or Grade 12 and to take the ACT or SAT during the other.
  • The test results report will reflect the appropriate norm-referenced comparisons based on the student’s grade level at the time of testing.
  • Calculators may be used for math subtests only when permitted by the Directions for Administration.
    • For Form C, calculator use should be marked on the answer document in the Y/N (Yes/No) bubbles at the end of Math Problem Solving.
  • Full testing schedules for these tests are available and can be found here for Form C and here for Form E of the Iowa Assessments.

Preparing for the Stanford 10

As you look forward to your upcoming testing, this preliminary information may be helpful in planning your testing sessions:

  • Please read and follow our Checklist and Guidelines, a copy of which will be included with the materials and is also available on the Support page.
  • Our service uses SESAT 1 through Primary 3 in write-in, two-part booklet formats.
  • If you are testing students with Intermediate and/or Advanced levels, one copy of the directions will be sent for each test level ordered.
    • With the exception of Listening, an Intermediate 1 or 2 Directions for Administering may be used to test the entire Intermediate group, and a single Advanced Directions for Administering may be used to test the entire Advanced group.
      • When applicable, we will include a separate chart to show which pages should be used in the different test levels’ student books.
    • If you will need more than one directions booklet for any single test level, you will want to request these directions when ordering.
      • If multiple orders are being shipped to the same tester, there will still be only one directions booklet sent per test level, unless extra directions are ordered.
      • If extra directions booklets are ordered separately from the tests, a minimum $3.99 shipping/handling fee applies. (For TASK booklets, only one Directions for Administering will be sent per shipment, unless extra directions are ordered.)
      • Intermediate 1 contains a Word Study Skills subtest that is not contained in Intermediate 2 or 3. This one subtest will need to be administered separately from any combined Intermediate testing and will require approximately 20 minutes of additional testing time. The Word Study Skills subtest is necessary for both a Basic and a Complete Battery.
      • Grades 11 and 12 share a single test level (TASK 3). The national trend is to take an achievement test during either Grade 11 or Grade 12 and to take the ACT or SAT during the other.
      • The test results report will reflect the appropriate norm-referenced comparisons based on the student’s grade level at the time of testing.
      • Calculators are permitted for the Stanford 10 only as indicated in the Directions for Administering. As a test administrator, please remember that the Stanford 10 is an untimed test; however, the OLSAT® and The Iowa Tests® are still timed tests. Please click here for a chart listing helpful approximate times for administering the Stanford 10.
