Students in home study programs shall be subject to an appropriate nationally standardized testing program administered in consultation with a person trained in the administration and interpretation of norm reference tests to evaluate their educational progress at least every three years beginning at the end of the third grade and records of such tests and scores shall be retained but shall not be required to be submitted to public educational authorities;
please help me define the underlines. Can I use a CAT test and mail it in for scoring? Is that considered in "consultation with a person trained in the administration and interpretation" of the test?
I know I have to give my older boys this test this spring but am confused of the law itself as it is written.
Also, what company do y'all recommend to purchase/score these tests?
