TestingMom.com is an online test prep for parents of gifted education and testing along with skill building, founded in 2010. Testing Mom membership services include expert advice, tele-seminars, practice questions, as well as books and games. The online programs help parents of children pre-K to 8th grade with skill building activities for school success and testing success. The platform also has content for common core testing and state testing. [1]

The site also sponsors educational seminars,[2] where parents learn about the process of getting into private schools or gifted and talented programs. TestingMom.com was founded by Michael McCurdy, NYC Gifted and Talented Parent Expert and by New York Times best-selling author and the Testing Mom, Karen Quinn,[3] whose books Testing For Kindergarten and The Ivy Chronicles led to her moniker of the "Testing Mom."

In 2011, the New York Post used several of Testing Mom's questions as part of a gifted education article.[4]
