Iowa Homeschool Assessments

As an option for homeschool families to meet the academic assessment report requirement set forth in Rule 3301-12-01 of the Ohio Administrative Code, Hamilton County ESC will be offering the online Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) Form E Complete Battery.

ITBS is a nationally normed assessment that measures student achievement and growth to help educators and families determine the degree to which students have mastered core learning standards and whether students are on track for college and career. Students will be assessed in vocabulary, reading, mathematics, science, and social studies.

COST: $50 per student ($30 for additional students from the same family)
