BASI  - $45 Group Rate / $55 individual computer-based test

Basic Achievement Skills Inventory

The Basic Achievement Skills Inventory (BASI) is a nationally standardized test and meets requirements for homeschool testing law. This test is a “fill in the circle, multiple choice” test, much like the IOWA, CAT, Terra Nova, etc. The BASI is completed in one 115 minute testing session.This test is administered and proctored by our staff, so parents will not need to stay for testing, but are welcomed.

The BASI helps present a complete evaluation of academic skills. These convenient tests yield standard scores, national percentile rankings, grade equivalency, age equivalency, and performance classification by learning objective without requiring individual administration or lengthy testing. It can be taken via computer or with a test booklet and answer sheet. If you are interested in a group test in your area, call Kay at (252)451-0118.

The comprehensive test is comprised of six timed subtests:

  • Vocabulary (10 minutes)

  • Spelling (10 minutes)

  • Language Mechanics (10 minutes)

  • Reading Comprehension (30 minutes)

  • Math Computation (20 minutes)

  • Math Application (35 minutes)
