Frequently Asked Questions


After these many years of providing the best in testing for our homeschooling families and friends, it seems to be time for us to spend more time with the children and grands. Please know we appreciate all of you and what you've allowed us to do -- help with the best tests and reports we could produce.

We plan to bring  this year's season to an earlier end than in previous years, because we never really stopped. We'll accept orders until Memorial Day, with regular test weeks starting May 6, 13 & 20. After that we'll send the last week in May and any June weeks as soon as materials become available. All tests will need to be returned before the last week in June in order for them to be scored.

As usual, we will score the tests in the order they are received. You should allow at least our 8 week turnaround time, without "checking" to see how yours are coming along because we're not even responding to those requests this year. If you have a date you need your results and it is less than 8 weeks from the time we received your return (check your USPS tracking for that date) you'll need to choose Rapid Response Scoring or use another test provider.

We plan to make this a smooth and successful end to our 34 years of providing tests and hope you will help us by carefully following all of the instructions.

Complete Battery Plus or Survey Plus?

One of the most frequent questions we're asked is "What is the difference in the test forms?"

The Complete Battery Plus is the more comprehensive test. The Survey Plus is shorter, not easier. The Survey has fewer questions in the tests of Reading, Language, Math, Science and Social Studies. The other tests (Reading Vocabulary, Language Mechanics, Math Computation and Spelling) are the same in both test forms.

Which test to choose? Either will satisfy your state requirement. While many homeschools use the Complete Battery, the Survey is often a wiser choice. It is especially appropriate for students with attention issues, and for teachers who want to spend the least amount of time possible on testing.

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 or repeat testing situations.

Bayside accurately scores all of these tests, providing you with comprehensive scoring reports that include national percentiles, national stanines and grade equivalents. Our new Scoring Report default is an emailed PDF, but you can choose the printed copy via standard mail instead of the PDF for $8 additional. Note that NC DNPE now accepts electronic reports for  "reporting by mail" homeschools so printed reports are no longer needed.
