Homeschool Testing at 10% Off!
Impactful Research Study Opportunity!

Homeschool testing can help you discover gaps in your student's educational program. Even so, does standardized testing seem like a formidable process that might infringe upon your homeschool privacy?

The good news is that standardized testing doesn't have to look like the fill-in-the-bubbles version you might remember from your school years. Also, testing services are available that are dedicated to your family's privacy.

And, even more exciting,
your homeschool testing can actually help preserve homeschool freedom!

All of this is attainable through a new private assessment opportunity available at a discount through Homeschool Iowa's partnership with BJU Press Homeschool Testing.

Why Test?

And One More Very Important Reason:

Homeschool Freedom Academic Achievement Study

Test at Home

You've probably heard that homeschool students achieve higher standardized test scores, on average, than their public school peers. Did you know this homeschool testing data is more than a decade old?

With increasing attacks on homeschooling, we know that
quality research is a powerful tool
in protecting homeschool freedom.

You can opt to participate in the new Homeschool Freedom Academic Achievement Study to meet this pressing need.

Homeschool Iowa is partnering with
Homeschool Freedom,
National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI),
Family Protection Ministries, and
BJU Press Homeschool 
to conduct this project.

All of the homeschool testing study data is collected, maintained, and reported anonymously. Personal information and privacy is protected, and scores will be collected without matching to specific students.

Your participation is vital to this nationwide research project.

When enough anonymously-collected test score data is available, our Homeschool Iowa Advocacy Team will use it to showcase the success of Iowa home education.

When you've ordered your test from BJU and received your study ID number, click the button below to access the study survey.


Homeschool testing can be completed at home.

Homeschool Iowa is pleased to partner with BJU Press Testing and Evaluation
to offer discounted access to the Iowa Assessments for your home use.
