Frequently Asked Questions

Donny & Sandy Ball's Bayside School Services offers the best do-it-yourself standardized achievement testing experience. Our services are available all year long.

An important seasonal message about test availability and test week preferences:

Test weeks are never guaranteed, but during the month of May and into the first part of June, we accept orders only on a first come, first served basis.

Most everyone who ordered their materials before May 1 should be okay. Everyone ordering May 1 or later will be okay also, just okay later.

When you order, specify your preference of 5/16, 5/23, 5/30 or 6/6, and in the comments space indicate either "any week is okay" or specify which, if any, of those weeks is NOT okay.

For example, if you're headed to the beach for the week after Memorial Day, tell us "do not send for the week of 5/30". 

If you are in North Carolina and concerned about the June 30 mail in reporting deadline, the test weeks noted above should get you your scores in time.

However, it is important to note, being late with mailing is NOT A PROBLEM with DNPE. If Bayside or any other test provider is unable to get reports to you in time to mail, just keep everything and mail it when the test results arrive. You do not need to contact DNPE to tell them you are late or to ask permission. 

If you are in Virginia and concerned about the August 1 reporting deadline, we encourage you to get your testing completed by the week of 6/27 and mail them back to us by Friday July 1. This will allow some time to spare since Virginia deadlines are locally reported and controlled. Each school system has its own policies and procedures.

when you check out, choosing Priority Mail over Media may make a timely difference.

Thank you for your understanding. Now back to our regular message.

The nationally standardized achievement test series we offer is the DRC CTB TerraNova. The newer CAT/6 TerraNova 2nd Edition, published in 2000, with updated 2005 norms, is the test of choice for the DIY homeschool.

We also offer the original 1996 CTBS TerraNova 1st Edition, for economy and for use in places where using the CAT6 is not allowed. (Georgia, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Washington DC)

The Test of Cognitive Skills, 2nd Edition (TCS/2), an aptitude, or IQ test, is our other test offering.

The CAT6 TerraNova2 is scored by the test publisher, or Bayside, either of which provides you with a comprehensive test report. Bayside scores the CTBS and the TCS2.

When you order from Bayside you get all of these benefits!
