If you prefer a one-on-one nationally normed assessment where you bring your student for testing this is best option for you. We assess students in-person pre-k to 12th grade and give you immediate feedback. However in NC, you are are only required to test once age 7. The chief administrator is responsible for obtaining and/or scheduling the nationally standardized test at some time during the school year. DNPE, nor the public school provide the test or funding for the tests. If an online test better meets your needs then look below for online options.Learn More
Not Offering at this time!!!! We are only doing Woodcock Johnson Testing!!! The Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) is a RIGOROUS nationally normed assessment for students in Grades 1-11 covering reading, listening, vocabulary, writing (spelling), mathematics, and science. Another plus is that the CTP contains some cognitive type assessments like verbal and quantitative reasoning subtests beginning in Grade3. If believe your student is very behind in any area please text us before you purchase this assessment so we can determine if best match. For a student that may be above average in let's say math or reasoning ability but low in spelling (not always related to cognitive ability, especially students with dyslexia) this test can still be a good match but if your student is below in reading they may find this assessment too difficult and do much better with an assessment like the Woodcock Johnson. Text me 9196023760 if you have concerns.Learn More
Do you want an individualized testing experience where you can test at ANY time during your school year? Do you want your student exposed to a testing situation out of your home? Do you have a student that is "above" in some areas and "lower" in other areas? Do you have a student that is well above "grade level" in your assessment? Do you have a student with developmental delays? Do you have concerns about curriculum choices? Do you have a student that is working at the college level in some areas? Do you have a non reader or early emergent reader? Do you have student that has experienced testing anxiety or anxiety in general? Does your student enjoy a challenge? Do you suspect learning differences? At any time might your student return to a traditional classroom setting? If you answered YES to ANY of these, the Woodcock Johnson Is most likely the best option.
• To measure what your child has learned in reading, mathematics, written language and general knowledge • To help you measure growth and get benchmarks • To look for strengths and weaknesses • To look for interdisciplinary discrepancies in learning: In traditional school many students are overlooked that are are gifted. This group of unserved students are those whose abilities and disabilities mask each other. Students who are gifted and also have learning disabilities do, in fact, exist but are often overlooked when students are assessed for either giftedness or learning disabilities(Fox, Brody, & Tobin, 1983). At ATC we refer to the "learning disabilities" as" learning differences"!
We specialize in special needs, learning differences, preschool to high school, and all types of learners. We also help to assess if your student is ready for Early College (Career & College Promise). ==> • Reading - comprehension, vocabulary, basic skills, phonics & word attack • Mathematics - computation, reasoning & application of basic skills • Language - knowledge, writing skills, expression, punctuation, spelling, grammar • Knowledge - general science, social studies, humanities
Advantages of WJ III® as compared to Group Test Such as CAT/5, SAT or Iowa Test of Basic Skills • Test questions are read both aloud and silently by either the proctor or the student who responds verbally or with some writing • Test is not timed (therefore, less pressure on the student) • Immediate feedback on your student's performance with a computerized score report • Requires only one to two hours of your time
BENEFITS OF TESTING WITH ATC • Friendly, relaxed, and personable testing in comfortable environment • Positive testing experience encourages students to excel • Most students actually enjoy taking the test, stating, “This is a fun test!” • One on One testing allows examiner to give encouraging words throughout the testing session • Once test items become too difficult the administrator takes student to next section determined by a set protocol
• Most testing takes from 55-65 minutes for younger test takers. Older students on average take about 1 1/2 hours. You may remain at your testing location, shop, relax, or eat. I will go over the test report thoroughly and provide brief feedback and curriculum recommendations if needed.Learn More
