Homeschooling testing options

Georgia law requires homeschoolers to test in 3rd grade, 6th grade, 9th grade and 12th grade. You do not have to send the results to the state but they are required to be in your files.  

Most online testing services do not require you to have a bachelor's degree. Most at home tests do. The exceptions to this is Homeschool Testing Services (which is Classical Conversations's testing service) for the Stanford 10 and Hewitt Homeschool's  PASS test.  Iowa Form A and CogAT are being retired this year but you can still purchase them until July. The newer tests for Iowa and CogAT are currently only available for school purchase. Another test that some homeschoolers take is the California Achievement Test (CAT). It is also available online or paper test. The online test does appear to be slightly cheaper at only $25.00 (https://www.academicexcellence.com/complete-online-california-achievement-test-timed/)
