Non-Test Assessment (qualifies for WA State homeschoolers)
After many years, we are transitioning from the PIAT-R (Peabody Individual Achievement Test – Revised) to a newer assessment tool. For a while, families who have been using this will still be able to use this tool, as long as the students have not achieved so high that the scores stop being helpful.
PIAT-R (Peabody Individual Achievement Test – Revised) Given orally – General Information, Reading Recognition, Reading Comprehension, Math and Spelling.
Optional – evaluation of a one-page writing sample – corrected with criteria that you receive along with an instructional lesson for one area of concern.
Neurodevelopmental Screening (auditory and visual processing; dominance).
Brief consultation with parents.
Fulfills requirement for annual homeschool assessment in Washington State.
For new families and for those ready to move to this tool, we highly recommend our new tool is the Wide Range Achievement Test – 5 (2017).
One difference with this new tool is that there is no General Information subtest. We can still use the PIAT-R General Information, or a family may choose to have the older student write a paragraph about each of the content areas (Science, History, Bible, Health, etc.) what he/she has learned about the content areas and/or special interests. In some cases, a younger child can dictate to the parent. Our test administrator will then give some suggestions regarding the content of the paragraphs and the writing skills.
Another difference is that test scores will not be available during our conversation with the parents, but usually later the same day via email.
Subtests: Word Reading, Sentence Comprehension, Math, and Spelling (none are multiple choice).
Both are given orally and one-on-one via Zoom and include a neurodevelopmental screening. In both cases, parents may ask questions following the assessment and scores are grade equivalents.

Brain Training Assessment
For the Brain Training Assessment, we use the WRAT5 that measures progress in reading, spelling and math. This can be used as a Non-Test Assessment for Washington state homeschooler. With the BTA, we have the parents complete forms. Then the Learning Specialist designs an Individualized Neurodevelopmental Plan (list of activities to stimulate the brain to encourage development) to complete at home with our support. Cost:
Initial: $220 Follow-ups: $165
Many parents choose to access our Brain Training services following the BTA. See below for description.
Depending on the results of the NTA or the BTA and the goals of the parents, families may be offered access to our professional account with HearBuilder.
