CHEWV Testing Questions
If we don't test with CHEWV, can CHEWV's testing service help us?
Since scores are released electronically, what if I don't have internet or email?
Email addresses provided to CHEWV are used for CHEWV business only and are never sold or given to others. Email is the most cost effective method we have for contacting families when necessary, so we greatly appreciate families who provide us with their email contacts. In addition, CHEWV sends a monthly e-newsletter and occasionally other informative emails such as updates during the Charleston Legislative session.
If you are still concerned about giving your personal email address, we ask that you open an alternative email address such as a gmail or yahoo account just for testing purposes. Do also note that access to the scores will come directly to the email address you provide; please choose the address accordingly.
If you honestly do not have access to the internet, you may contact Brian and Becky Price (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make special arrangements.

What other testing options are available besides CHEWV testing?
Our testing program is a volunteer effort that exists only to assist families. We work hard to ensure that our program meets the WV code and is beyond reproach. Our scores also help us fight legislative battles because we can prove the success of WV homeschoolers. However, it is not the only viable testing option.
Families can order directly from BJ Press Testing & Evaluation but will not receive the CHEWV county report, and will not have the assistance of our test centers or our testing volunteers. However, both the Iowa and the Stanford are available in that way.
Tests are also available now from A Beka. When using their online version with an administrator who is not physically present, we do recommend using a proctor to defend the integrity of the testing situation. However, their online option has been verified by the publisher and deemed to meet the standards of the WV code.
Lastly, WVHEA offers the Terra Nova. It is a survey type of test, provides one score report, and takes only one day to administer. Although not as extensive in scope as the Iowa, it is a viable option for meeting the assessment option.
What if I miss CHEWV's test registration deadline?
What if I have additional questions?
Contact your TCC for questions about your test center.
Contact Carole Werner (email@example.com)about private testing registrations.
All questions about online or mail-in registrations, and all inquiries after the deadline should be sent to Brian and Becky Price at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If my child was given an assessment test in the public school and then I remove the child to homeschool, can I use the public school assessment as my assessment to submit to the county board of education by June 30?
