    Default In need of teacher for end of year testing

    I currently home school using time4learning, but as I understand it, you have to have an accredited teacher to give a standardized test. Is this true? If so, where can I find one who doesn't charge an arm and a leg.

    It's unusual, but Georgia's homeschool law is worded to sound like the parent may administer the test themselves. Many test vendors have their own requirements regarding who they will sell their tests to, though. Here is a page about testing, directly from Georgia's Department of Non-Public Education. Standardized Tests

    Since I am neither a resident of Georgia nor a homeschool attorney, this isn't legal advice. I'm just an experienced homeschool mom, trying to help.

    Hi there! I'm in GA. I think the laws are worded awkwardly. Lol. I know TONS of GA homeschooling families that take the tests at home (the PASS test is fairly popular). Maybe the laws are for scoring the tests. I know even with the ones that are taken at home, you send the tests back to get scored and the results are mailed back to you.

    I also know that for those families that DO want to have an accredited/certified administrator, they group together and pay someone to do it. Our homeschool group does that every year. Cuts the fee to just a few dollars ($10-15) per family.
