Academic Placement Tests
Every homeschool parent knows that correct educational placement testing is a key component to successful homeschooling. At Alpha Omega Publications, we want to improve your effectiveness as a teacher and promote your child's academic enjoyment. To accurately place your child into our Christian homeschool curriculum, we offer free placement test resources for LIFEPAC and Horizons.
How do I know what grade level is right for my child?
Whether transitioning your child from a traditional school or starting his homeschooling journey in kindergarten, it's important to first test your child's academic abilities. Not only can you avoid the possibility of learning gaps (a problem that occurs because concepts are not uniformly presented at the same time within all curriculum), you can also determine if your child is being challenged too little or too much. For instance, your 5th grade homeschooler may be at his grade level for science and history in a particular curriculum, but need a 3rd grade level for English and/or a 6th grade level for math.
To avoid return headaches with extra shipping expenses and a frustrated homeschool student using curriculum that's too easy or too hard, determine your child's placement level in a homeschool curriculum with that curriculum's diagnostic tests.
