~ Important Announcement ~

SSS is having to transition
away from using the Iowas Tests for achievement testing as the form we use is no longer being published.

We have researched several alternative achievement tests, and would like to recommend the following standardized tests which can be administered at home:

Personal Achievement Summary System (PASS)
For grades 3-8

With the PASS Test, parents are sent the testing materials and will have a four week window during which to test their child in reading, language, and mathematics. The tests are all untimed.

You may sign up for this test directly with Hewitt Homeschooling, the foundation behind the test. The description, pricing and online order form can be found on
this page. We have contacted Hewitt Homeschooling directly, and despite what it says on their website, they do ship overseas.

However, if for ease of mind you would like SSS to order and send the test and report to you, the cost will be ¥5000. If you prefer this option, please indicate on this Doodle which testing window(s) you would like to test your child. Hewitt Homeschooling recommends testing your child twice a year, but you may find that once a year is sufficient for your family.

California Achievement Test (CAT)
For grades 3-8

Like the PASS, the CAT can be administered by parents at home. The test is all online, administered in multiple sections, and you are given the flexibility of having a year to complete it. Tests are scored immediately, with comprehensive results available right away.
