ERC Tests

The Test Collection

This collection consists of standardized tests including developmental, reading, behavioral, achievement, diagnostic, and skills inventories.

NOTE: Tests do not normally circulate outside of the Library due to the cost of replacement and licensing restrictions. They are like Reserve Items. You must sign out each test in order to use it.
