Testing must be completed no later than August 15 (end of the school year). Students are tested on reading comprehension, language arts,
math, and critical thinking. Individual school districts may require testing of home school students in other grades in order to participate in public school sports or activities.

Pencils and rulers are provided. Calculators are optional for some tests, but are not furnished. Students may bring a book to read while they are waiting for others to finish. They are encouraged to bring a snack for break time. Phones, tablets, iPads, or other electronic devices should be left at home or with a parent or other adult during testing.
