    • The student shall take a nationally normed student achievement test administered by a certified teacher; or
    • The student shall take a state student assessment test used by the school district and administered by a certified teacher, at a location and under testing conditions approved by the school district; or
    • The student shall be evaluated by a psychologist holding a valid, active license pursuant to the provisions of 490.003(7) or (8) F.S.; or
    • The student shall be evaluated with any other valid measurement tool (e.g., official transcript from an accredited program) as mutually agreed upon by the school superintendent of the district in which the student resides and the student's parents/guardian.
