HEP Bookstore will accept registrations to administer the Iowa test beginning January 2019.

Please wait until February 15 to order the Iowa test from BJU Press. We are planning with the Iowa publisher's permission to use the Iowa form C tests; however, if they limit homeschool use in the Houston area, we will notify you.


We are no longer testing Kindergarten due to low enrollment for this test. If we have enough people interested (about 10) we can offer K Testing. Please contact

Please note: There is not room for parents and siblings to remain at HEP during testing. We encourage you to go to the park or some other place where your young children can have fun while your other children are testing.

Also, parents must park in marked parking places and not block the parking lot exits. We share the Fuqua Business Park with many other businesses and need to be good citizens when parking. Please help us with this important safety issue.

How do I register with HEP?

Will modifications be made for special needs students?

  • We will not make any modifications since BJU requires that each special needs child be tested in an individual environment. 

How will I get my results?

  • Results will be posted electronically to the parent's BJU Press account.

  • Results normally take about two weeks for processing. Go to and login to your account using your login and password. An account would have been set up for you when you purchased the test. We will make every effort to ship the tests back to BJU for scoring as soon as the testing is complete.

  • BJU will not accept partial orders so if a child is absent due to illness and wishes to make up the test on a later date, the testing can not be returned until the make-up session is complete. We do make every effort to encourage parents to complete make-ups as soon as possible.

Who will administer the tests?

This year, we will use qualified/certified testers. These ladies are all HEP Teachers or parents and are wonderful with children. Each is experienced and will ensure that your child has the best possible conditions for testing.

The tentative testers include: Joanne Juren, Valerie Maier, Cheryl Red, Crystal Rothberg, Carrie Rothberg, Laura Coker-Garcia. and Leigh Ann Whitman.

REGISTRATION FORM HEP IOWA Test Registration Form 2019


Last year several parents ordered tests without letting us know. This caused us to be over-crowded.  For 2019, if we fill up and do not have a registration form for you, you will NOT be allowed to test.  So, be sure to order the test AND let HEP know you are testing by completing this form and paying your $37.89 fee.
