    Default Testing out of 7th. Due to health issues. help

    Due to health issues our 7th grader has been off the grid for quite a few months. We found T4L and he likes it... we are wanting to go ahead and test him out of the grade, and see where he fits at the moment. We are trying to make this very low stress as that is one of the issues we are healing. How do we go about finishing an actual class? Are there unit tests that scoot him along? tia

    We have found trial and error to be more accurate than a placement test. Students can work at different grade levels for each subject, or even move back and forth between grade levels.


    Some parents look at the scope and sequence and start their child a little below where they "think" they are working. Then, they have the student take each chapter test BEFORE doing the lessons in the chapter. If they do well on the test, they do not do the lessons in that chapter. They move on and try the chapter test at the end of the NEXT chapter. If they do not do well on the test, they do the lessons and try the test again. In this way, the student is only studying material they have not yet learned and can usually proceed more quickly.
