SMART Testing

Welcome!

Smoky Mountain Academic Resources & Training (SMART) has been offering educational services to the homeschool community for the past several years. We are pleased to again offer the Woodcock-Johnson IV (WJ IV), The Iowa Tests, and Stanford 10 Achievement Tests. All tests offered by SMART meet NC Homeschool Law testing requirements.

When should I schedule? Right now! Students can test any month of the year with WJ IV and the test will be normed to that month. Consider changing your testing date to fall to gain valuable diagnostic information to help plan your child's academic year. It is best to get on our schedule as early as you can so that your time slot is not taken. Most clients book 2 months in advance for spring dates. Please contact one of the SMART Associates directly to schedule an appointment.

Woodcock-Johnson IV Materials and Testing: SMART offers a new computer scoring program with the most current norms available. You will immediately receive a computerized score report sent to you as a PDF file. Your trained SMART Associate will explain and discuss your child's scores.

Current WJ IV Associates:

Glenna Toney: NC Certified Teacher, over 10 years testing experience.

Cindy Hyde: M.Ed., CALP - Certified Academic Language Practitioner - Specializes in all students including reading delayed and gifted.
Renee Smith: M.Ed.- 25 years of experience in personalizing education and has taught K-12, ESL, and college classes.

Please call a SMART Associate directly to schedule a testing appointment. These talented ladies consider it a joy and ministry to work with your students.

WJ IV Payment: Rates are dependent on testing choices; payment is due when testing session is booked.
Registration form must be completed on the SMART website after your session is scheduled and should indicate the associate of your choice.

The IOWA Tests: SMART offers the Iowa Tests with optional Cognative Abilities Test (CogAT) in the spring. Pre-registration is required.
