FAQ

  • Can all my children use the same log-in and take the assessments?
    No. Your children must each have their own log-in. This is because the test is computer adaptive and changes question difficulty level based on correct and incorrect answers. Also, the report you need to turn in for PEP Scholarship students will reflect only one student name and cannot be changed. You must purchase one Northridge Academy membership per child.
  • How often can my child take the assessments?
    We recommend taking the Reading and Math or Early Literacy tests three times during the year to see growth and monitor what skills your student is learning. Recommended testing time are Beginning/Fall, Middle/Winter, and End/Spring. You can progress monitor more frequently, if desired.
