Complete Battery Plus or Survey Plus?

One of the most frequent questions we're asked: "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.

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

Bayside accurately scores all of these tests, providing you with comprehensive scoring reports that include national percentiles, national stanines and grade equivalents.
