All assignments are made on the first day of the conference. Thanks for your understanding. The program will include some curriculum and group work.  


Testing Program:

The following testing options will be offered if you desire an educational assessment for your child. If you are not sure of the type of test required then please request and return a questionnaire to ceo@anchoreducation.org before booking a test. You may sign up on the Testing Booking form via this link.

Early Reading Diagnostic Assessment (grades K-2)
This test provides information on the development of skills your child needs to become a successful reader. These skills include phonemic and phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. This test is not for Pre-schoolers or Kindergarten Kids aged 4 years.


IOWA Test of Basic Skills (grades 3-8) (group testing)
Achievement testing using the ITBS is provided to assess whether your child is “on track” with his or her age mates. The
Core Battery offers assessment in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics.  The Full Battery adds Science, Social Studies, Maps and Diagrams and Reference Materials. The Full Battery takes at least 3 days (6 sessions) to administer, whilst the Core Battery takes 2 days.  



This test provides information on comprehension from sentences, word reading, spelling and math computation. It gives a grade equivalent

Dyslexia Indication Test
(shows areas affected and leads to identifying coping strategies)


Other Tests as agreed with parents after submission of a Test Questionnaire.


In some cases, these tests may identify issues that need special attention or further assessment.
