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.

Two situations where testing costs more

If you need results faster than the typical 4-8 weeks, we can score the tests and provide an accurate computer report for $39 per test. Choose this option when adding items to your Shopping Bag.

If your mailing address is not in the USA or APO/FPO, email us with your test type, quantities and grade levels, with your complete mailing address and phone number. We'll double check the Priority Mail International pricing (up to 3 tests is typically $35) for you.


If you do not wish to order online and prefer to mail your order, send us your name, address, phone#, and preferred test week. Tell us the grade level(s) and test type for each student, if you want Practice Exercises, and add in the appropriate postage. Include your check or money order. If you want to make sure we received your mail order, include a self-addressed, stamped postcard or envelope that we will return to you.

Questions or problems with ordering or testing?


To make the testing process as efficient as possible, we ask you to choose a preferred test week. While we do our best to fulfill your request, we do not guarantee test weeks.

If you have a situation where you have no flexibility in test administration, email us to check available options.

Test prices include use of materials for a one week (Monday - Friday) test period. If possible, allow at least 3 weeks between your order date and your requested starting test date, but please know, we accept email rush orders.

We mail your test orders to arrive by the Saturday before your selected test week. After we receive the completed tests, we send your results, usually within 4-8 weeks. It can take longer, so order and test well in advance of any state or local deadlines.

Sales tax applies only to the cost of books and accessories. Postage is $10 for tests and other items. Include your check or money order.

Orders May Be Revised, No Cancellations or Refunds, and Must Include This Signed Statement:

"I agree to take care of the tests as directed. I will administer them according to the provided instructions. I will return all materials within the specified time limit."

Shopping Cart and Email orders may simply indicate agreement rather than including an actual signature.


Schools and homeschool groups testing together at the same time in one location may be eligible for Group Pricing.

Group prices include the use of test materials for a one week test period, one manual per 10 tests of each lower grade, and one manual per 15 tests of grades 4 and above. Group testing is available from February through March and at other times with sufficient notice.

Email us with pricing inquiries for the 2019-2020 school year. Include the approximate quantities by grade levels and if you want Practice Exercises. Specify your test week.

Groups must submit one order, with one payment, one shipment and one return. You must test together, at the same time in one location. Return postage is not included.
