Getting Started on How to Decide which Standardized Test to Order

Get the grade level test for the grade the student is currently in or has just recently completed according to a traditional school-year calendar.
If you are trying to determine your child’s grade level placement, please see our diagnostic online assessments for reading and math.

The IOWA and TerraNova/CAT 6 are the only standardized tests we offer that are available for all the grades K-12.

Grades K – 2:  Your only options are the IOWA or the TerraNova/CAT 6.

Whoever administers the IOWA test must have a bachelor’s degree. No degree is required to administer the TerraNova/CAT 6.

Grades 3 – 12:  If you prefer an online test, an option for 3rd* – 12th grade is the Stanford Online.

*3rd grade testing for the Stanford Online is only available from January 1 – July 31.

Grades 4 – 12:  You could use any of our standardized tests.

  • If you want a standardized test that covers only Reading, Language Arts, and Math, get the CAT E/Survey (California Achievement Test).
  • If you want to cover those subjects plus Science & Social Studies, then you could order the IOWA, the TerraNova/CAT 6, or the Stanford Online.

  • For further differences between the tests and possible state restrictions, please see our Test Comparison Charts.

    There are special ordering steps and discounts for schools and groups.

    You should be able to obtain registration bulletins from a local high school, community college or a public library.  The registration bulletins list the centers and the dates; please check them for the center most convenient for you.

    It is important for Juniors (11th graders) to take the PSAT test, as there are scholarship opportunities based on the results. Most notably, the National Merit Scholarship program uses the PSAT as their benchmark. Ask a local high school for registration.

    Current SAT and PSAT test dates and other information may be found at:

    Current ACT test information may be found at: http://www.act.org

    Current CLT test dates and locations can be found at: https://www.cltexam.com/locations

    The Internet is by far your best source for information on scholarships and financial aid. Putting in key words such as “scholarship,” or “college tuition help” and the like should gain you a wealth of information.
