Although Texas home schoolers are not required to take standardized tests during each academic school year, home schoolers do have the option of using different types of testing to determine grade placement and to assess their child’s academic progress throughout the years. Many parents also choose to have their children take the PSAT during their junior year, which can open up scholarship opportunities for college. Another testing group that can be beneficial to college-bound students is the SAT, ACT, AP, or CLEP tests.
