Woodcock-Johnson III (NU)
Tests of Achievement

NEW! Online testing using the Woodcock-Johnson III (NU) Tests of Achievement (2005 norms)

Due to the COVID-scare that has precipitated the current academic situation and the stay-at-home policies of many, our in-person testing with the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement is being discontinued for the present.

However, the good news is that the publisher, Riverside Insights, has given us permission to administer the tests using a web-video-assessment format.

According to their guidelines, we are required to do the following:

1. Acknowledge and document that this "non-standard administration" of the test is temporarily being used because of the current situation in the United States.
2. Comply with all applicable Federal and State laws regarding achievement testing.
3. Focus on the best interest of the students in our processes and procedures.
4. Comply with the legal and ethical standards as set forth by the National Association of School Psychologists.
5. Preserve the security and integrity of the test materials at all times.
6. Exercise wisdom when interpreting scores from this non-standard testing procedure, especially when it comes to using the scores for grade placement.

Our service to you:

Our standard, 45-60 min. per student, Woodcock-Johnson achievement testing service will be conducted by video conferencing through Zoom.us web-meeting host. This will make testing available to you and your student(s) in the comfort and safety of your own home.

As per the guidelines on page 16 of the Woodcock-Johnson Technical Manual, we are focusing our online testing on the subjects of English Grammar, Reading, Spelling, and Math, and will be administering the following subtests: Letter Word Identification, Passage Comprehension, Math Calculation, Math Applied Problems, Spelling Dictation, and Punctuation/Capitalization.

After the test is completed, you will receive a personal consultation about your student's performance on the test, and the 1-page student report plus an explanation page in pdf documents will be sent to your email. Payment is requested at the end of the testing session.

Here is how it will work:

1. Administration of the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement to your student(s) in this web-video format is by appointment. So please call or email me if you have not already scheduled a day and time for your student(s).
2. On the day of the test, you will need a computer, ipad, or smart phone with a camera and microphone, plus scratch paper and pencil with eraser. Your student should have a secure and quiet area in which to complete the test questions as he/she looks at the screen and hears my voice.
3. I will send you an invitation from my personal secure email with the link to access the Zoom.us website and the one-on-one private video meeting. Getting set up for the test is fairly simple, but if you are not familiar with using Zoom, you may want to visit that website for more details.
4. After the test is completed, I will explain your student's scores and send the report(s) to your email.
5. The cost is $50 per student, payable by credit card at the end of the testing session. Or you may mail us a check or money order if you prefer.

By utilizing our testing service using this web-video format of the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement, you hereby agree to do the following:
1. Maintain the security of testing materials before and after the testing, not sharing them with other students or families who may be testing in the future.
2. Adhere strictly to all copyright laws, and under no circumstances record the test session, photocopy or otherwise reproduce the testing materials shown on your computer screen.
3. Avoid labeling students based on a single test score.
4. Comply fully with all applicable laws in your state regarding achievement testing.
5. Not use this test and/or report as a practice for the same or any other nationally standardized achievement test.

Thank you again for reading this information and using our online testing service. We look forward to serving you in this way during these unusual times.
