What should I expect about standardized testing?

From K-12, your child can expect up to four standardized tests. In K-6 or K-8, your child is going to experience, every Spring. If your child is in private school, that test is called the ERB. If your child is in public school, that test depends on the state that you live in and is testing your child's knowledge of information that he or she learns in school each year. In Middle School, if your child is either moving into a new school or a new private school or public school to private school, your child is taking either the SSAT or the ISCE. In Tenth Grade, children preparing for college, will take the PSAT to teat their readiness for the SAT. In Eleventh Grade, your child will be taking the SAT or ACT in order to prepare for college.
