The Saturday School for Scholars and Leaders Achievement Testing Program (SSATP) utilizes the Basic Achievement Skills Inventory (BASI) created by Achilles N. Bardos, Ph.D. and published by Pearson Assessments. The BASI is a multi-level, norm-referenced test that measures math, reading, and language skills. The BASI helps present a complete evaluation of academic skills. This test yields standard scores, national percentile rankings, grade equivalency, and age equivalency. This test was normed during the 2002–03 school year and has been found to be highly correlated to other leading achievement and intelligence tests. The BASI is a current, valid and reliable assessment tool.
The cost of testing is $165 payable by check or credit card (Visa/Mastercard). Testing fees must be paid with your registration.
