Dear Homeschool Parents,
I will be offering SAT testing for grades 2-11, March 13-15 from 8:45-12:00 ish. Testing will be at Flint River Baptist Church, Meridianville, AL, in conjunction with Tennessee Valley Fellowship Coop. Grouping for testing will be : 2nd, 3rd, 4th-6th, 7th-8th, 9th-11th. The tests are different for the combined groups, but instructions and timing are the same. Thursday, we will run over a little, as we will end with a pizza party. We’ll collect money for the pizza that week, usually about $1 each.
Otis Lenon will be offered. It is done BEFORE the actual test.
13th, Otis Lenon, 8:30, SAT begins @ 9:30
14th, SAT 8:45
15th, SAT 8:45
Cost is $50 for SAT or $51.50 by paypal
Cost for OLSAT $70 or $72.00 by paypal (Otis Lenon & SAT).. Show's "school ability" as well as how the child is performing in relation to ability
Deadline for registration is Mon. Jan. 23, 2012
I take cash and check, or paypal (with paypal fee included)If your child has any special needs regarding testing, I need to be aware of this when you register....make a note to me. The children need to be calm during testing.. no annoying noises, pencil tapping etc., as it will disturb their neighbors. We do take breaks, so they are not sitting the WHOLE 3 hour time.. we can stretch, go to the bathroom, etc. after each section, the longest being just under an hour. We take a snack break about halfway through, and they can play in the gym (usually their favorite time).
If you have a 4 year degree and would be willing to help with testing, contact me, even if you’d just be available for a day, or willing to act as a substitute.
They've changed some of the way one registers, so call and talk to BJU!
This is a joint effort, and we will need an ON SITE nursery/playgroup if testers have small children needing care.
Moms, you are welcome to stay and visit with other uninvolved moms. I always need a few extra sets of eyes :) If you will not be staying at Flint River, I will need a contact person/cell phone #, in case of any emergency.
If interested in test preparation materials, you may be able to get them from Bob Jones 1-800-845-5731, call and ask. The one from Rainbow Resources is called Scoring High on the Stanford Achievement Test, and is for grades 1-8. Teacher books are around $10, students around $4 I found it to be more involved and worth the money than the one Bob Jones offered in the past (personal opinion). Rainbow Resources1-888-841-3456. You can order these things yourself.
Remind your children that we are GUESTS of Flint River Baptist Church, and to act accordingly :)
