Free Online Reading Assessments for Homeschoolers

I realize some of you love to test your kiddos.  Others are totally against it.  I fall into both categories.  So, for those of us on both sides of the fence, here are some Free Online Reading Level Assessments for Homeschoolers.  There are a few links that include tests you must buy.  I wanted to include those just in case the free ones aren’t what you are looking for.

Why Do I Test?

  • Testing was enjoyable for me as a student.  I always loved to challenge myself and see how well I was doing.  Therefore, I enjoy testing.
  • Tests are a part of life sometimes and I like to expose my kids to them now and then
  • It’s a good motivator for me when I’m feeling lazy in my routine.
  • My boys enjoy the break in monotony
  • It helps me see my kids a little differently than I do on any normal day.  It sometimes opens new doors in what I need to teach them.  However, usually it does not.
