Kathie in VA Posted February 7, 2012 Share Posted February 7, 2012 [similar to post on logic board, updated for my high schooler] We test yearly on LA and Math. This is mainly for state requirements but dh also likes to know how the kids compare to others. So far I have mainly used the CAT tests. We used the IOWA one a few years ago but the CAT is so easy to get and administer. I can sign up with the public school for either the Stanford 10 Achievement Test or the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills if I want. I can also sign up to become a tester, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. So is it worth it to use either of these other tests instead of the CAT test? I've heard the CAT test is 'easier' than the others but I don't know if this is true. Aside from the administration details, are there differences between these tests? For my 10th grader, I thought we'd be doing the SAT's but he is still catching up in math. He'll finish Algebra this school year. No sense doing an SAT without Algebra and at least some Geometry. Just not sure if we should do another CAT or if there a reason to do one of the other two?? :confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
