Testing in Washington. . .

Your student(s) must participate in annual testing and this can be accomplished one of ​two ​ways:
* Non-test assessments - an assessment of the student's academic progress is written by a
​Washington State certified teacher who is currently working in the field of education.
* Standardized testing - a standardized achievement test approved by the State Board of Education is administered annually to the child by a qualified individual.
Test results are part of your private homeschool record, no one else should receive a copy.
