Frequently Asked Questions

Are all of these tests state approved?
Yes, most states, including North Carolina and Virginia, accept the Complete Battery Plus and Survey Plus forms of the CAT/6 TerraNova 2nd Edition and the CTBS TerraNova 1st Edition..

Who can administer these tests?
Any homeschool teacher, as long as your state does not object. You CAN "do it yourself" in North Carolina.

Can I use the tests to make sure my child is prepared?
No! The test publisher specifically excludes using tests for practice or preparation.

How long do I have to administer the tests?
A one week test period is scheduled and recommended. This allows some leeway as the testing takes only 2 or 3 days.

What about late returns?
Your tests are late if they are postmarked after the Saturday of your test week. Late charges apply except as noted below. You must agree to return all testing material, whether administered or not, and whether we apply a late charge or not, within 3 weeks of your scheduled start date.

What to do if it's test week and I have a problem?
If you need additional time due to sickness or other circumstances beyond your control, such as a family emergency, or your post office not having Saturday hours, just follow the instructions included with your test materials. Be certain to write a note in the space on the Return Form.

How long does it take to get results?
After we receive your completed tests, it normally takes up to 8 weeks for us to email your results. If you don't follow our instructions, it will take longer. Please note that reporting is faster in September through March. We score tests in the order received. If you need faster results, see the next question.

What if I need results sooner?
Order Rapid Response Scoring. We will email your Bayside scored results within two days from the time we receive your completed tests. Often we can send your report within hours of receiving your test return.

What about Group Pricing?
Group pricing is available. Some restrictions apply to group orders. See the Ordering Information section for more details.

How can an individual get the best price?
Be a Bayside customer - and you have it!

What about my special needs student?
We recommend the Survey Form. Consideration is allowed for learning disabled or other special needs students with respect to modifying time limits and instructions. If you make such exceptions the norms referenced results will be subject to your or other expert interpretation. You can request us to email the publisher's Guidelines for Inclusive Testing to help you modify the testing process to help your student.
