About the Course
I. Bob Jones Standardized Testing
As homeschooling parents, we are always questioning ourselves. When it comes to education, there is no real standard: families are different, situations are different, and children are different. We must cater to what works best for each of those differences and trust in the Lord’s faithfulness. Testing is a good resource for parents. It tells us where our children’s strengths and weaknesses are and how to adjust our curriculum to meet their needs. More than anything else, testing is a way to confirm to parents (and others) that our children are succeeding. Cornerstone provides standardized testing in April/May of each year. We test through Bob Jones University and use Iowa Test, Form E. All grades may be tested and outside families are welcomed to join us.
II. Classical Learning Test—CLT
These tests are similar to their standardized counterparts (PSAT/SAT/ACT), but differ in their material. Their readings will be classically based and more familiar to our students. CLT8 is a high school readiness test for 7th and 8th graders. CLT10 is for 9th and 10th grades and is comparable to the PSAT, and the CLT is for 11th and 12th grades and is comparable to the SAT/ACT. Both the CLT10 and CLT offer opportunities for scholarships from a long list of colleges that accept CLT scores. Cornerstone offers CLT testing in the April.
Announcements and plans will be sent out in January.
My name is Mrs. Erickson and I teach English, History, Creative Writing, and SAT/AP test prep. I was born and raised in Upstate NY and graduated from Houghton College with a BS in Christian Education. I also have a teaching certificate from the Evangelical Teacher Training Association in Christian Education. I have worked with all ages, from young children to adults, teaching Christian Education classes and tutoring students in Reading/English for 25+ years. I homeschooled my two boys in the Classical tradition throughout their schooling years and have taught in the classroom for about 12+ years. I have been married to my husband Mark for 28 years, and I am a grandmother to three grandchildren. I love to crochet, cross stitch, read, and spend time at home.
