Standardized tests are one of the ways to fulfill the annual assessment requirement. Numerous standardized tests are available and each have different administration requirements, fees, and  scoring turn-around times. Some, but not all, are aligned with Common Core Standards. Students are expected to achieve a composite score at or above the 40th percentile per RSA 193-A. As of 2012 annual assessments are not required to be submitted to the Participating Agency, but results should be kept with the student's records for a minimum of two years.

Home educators may chose from a number of standardized tests such as Basic Achievement Skills Inventory (SASI), the California Achievement Test (CAT), the Stanford Test, the Iowa Basic Skills Test (ITBS), the Personalized Achievement Summary System (PASS), the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), the TerraNova, and others. Many of these tests may be administered at home by parents, but others may require a qualified teacher or proctor. Consult the providers' website for more information. Parents need to reserve the exam in advance for a specific time period and return it by a particular date.

Below is a list of some, but not all, of the various providers; more can be found online. This is not an endorsement or recommendation of any particular test or provider.
