Testing Requirements

In North Carolina, an annual standardized test should be administered to all Homeschooled students from the age of  7, until their graduation from your Homeschool Program.
Those tests must measure achievement in the areas of :
  • English Grammar
  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Mathematics
According to the HSLDA Website:
“Parents must administer an annual standardized test (§ 115C-564) any time during the school year which must be made available on request “for inspection” by the state. “For one year after the testing, all records shall be made available … at the principal office of such school, at all reasonable times, for annual inspection by a duly authorized representative of the State of North Carolina.” (§ 115C-549 or § 115C-557).
Although the Division of Nonpublic Education has attempted to perform home visits under this provision, the law gives its officials no right to enter homes or to inspect any records besides test scores. There is also no statutory requirement for parents to attend regional meetings arranged by the Division of Nonpublic Education for the purpose of reviewing their records. Copies of testing results can be simply mailed to the Division of Non-Public Education upon request. “

Review the “Links” section of North Carolina’s Homeschool-ology website (Page one), you can find companies that provide testing materials that meet the standards of the NC statues.
