Scoring High practice tests got more difficult
for homeschoolers to purchase this year. To order them from McGraw-Hill’s
Educational Division/SRA, you must provide some documentation that you are
legally homeschooling such as a letter from your county approving your program
or a membership confirmation from a homeschooling organization. Since many of us
don’t have such proof, SRA might accept a copy of the newsletter mailing label
showing “member through [date].” If McGraw-Hill accepts this documentation,
it will set up a “teacher account” for you, and you will receive the 25%
school discount on your purchases.
If you don’t want to go through SRA’s procedures, Scoring
High can still be obtained through Rainbow Resources (www.rainbowresource.com,
1-888-841-3456) and possibly from other suppliers.
Curriculum Associates also has a test practice series called Test
Ready for all grade levels in Reading, Language Arts, Math, Algebra, Science
and Social Studies. They offer a free sampler pack to homeschoolers through www.cahomeschool.com, Curriculum Associates Inc., P.O. Box 2001, N. Billerica,
