Standardized testing is not required in the state of Montana. However, there are multiple reasons why homeschool parents would choose to have their students tested periodically. MATCHE will offer an opportunity for standardized testing of students in third through eighth grade annually.
Standardized testing for elementary students in spring, 2020, is cancelled due to Covid-19.
The next standardized test for 3rd through 8th grade students will be offered in spring, 2021.
PSAT Practice Test for MATCHE members on Wednesday, September 16, 2020
Offered at Grace Gospel Fellowship in Hamilton, 8:45am - 12:00pm
The PSAT is traditionally taken in the fall of the sophomore & junior years. Juniors taking the PSAT may be eligible for National Merit Scholarships, especially helpful for college-bound homeschoolers in the 94th percentile and above. MATCHE is offering an unofficial paper practice test that students would take home to be graded by the parents (answer key to be sent out after the testing), in order to get exposure to a live test setting and practice taking the test. Please contact Leah Duke for additional information and register no later than Sept 12: firstname.lastname@example.org, call 777-1135, or text 493-4293. She will need each student's name, grade, email, and phone number.
