Offered through the SHARE support group, usually in late May.

Offered through Living Word Christian School, 310 Cardinal Place, St. Peters, MO 63376, (636) 970-2398, Contact: Jan Stark. They open up their testing to homeschoolers in grades 1st thru 12th.

Additionally, your local public school will provide free testing services.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are unable to make the dates of the group testing events or if your children are uncomfortable with the group setting, you can test at home individually or in small groups. The tests results will be sent directly to you.
While there are some specific guidelines, the Iowa is very flexible and allows families to test at home privately. The Stanford Achievement Test does require that you have at least a four-year college degree (it does not have to be in education) and you must administer the test to at least two non-family members at the same time as your child. These tests can be purchased through Bob Jones University Press. For more specific details contact them at 800-739-8199 or http://www.bjup.com/

Free On-line Assessment Tests

Free Assessment Tests through  Texas Education Agency
http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/resources/release/
Section 101.33 of the Texas Administration Code (TAC) states, “Beginning in 2004 with the 2003–2004 school year and subsequent even-numbered years, the Texas Education Agency shall release all test items and answer keys for the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), the State-Developed Alternative Assessment (SDAA), and the Reading Proficiency Tests in English (RPTE). After a period of five years, each test item that has been field-tested but not used on a test will be released.” In order to implement this section of the TAC, the tests are made available to the public after all districts have completed testing and in accordance to the Schedule for Release of Tests adopted by the State Board of Education on September 12, 2003.  They provide both on-line and downloadable versions of these tests.  Tests are available for grades k-11 in the areas of mathematics, language arts, science, history and social studies.  Not all subjects, grades and years are available. These tests are free.
