Several of our parents have asked about the free diagnostic testing conducted by The Tutoring Center. The Tutoring Center utilizes the Kaufmann Test of Educational Achievement (KTEA) for all of our diagnostic testing. The KTEA is used nationwide as a measure of academic achievement in education. Many educational professionals administer the KTEA charging up to $300 for this single test. However, as part of our community outreach, The Tutoring Center administers the KTEA (along with a KTEA test consultation) FREE.
All of our students are given the free KTEA prior to enrolling in one of our programs. This assessment provides the parent with a clear picture of where their child is scoring as well as his/her strengths and weaknesses. After the free test consultation, the parent is provided with a clear picture of what needs to be done to help their child and an approximate timeline for the length of tutoring needed to help their son/daughter. Furthermore, our testing is a great indication of FCAT and Common Core preparedness.
