Aug 17, 2007
A number of parents are choosing to teach their children at home. This is not an easy decision to make, as not all parents are able to teach their kids. You need to sure about what you are doing, if you are planning to homeschool your kids. Try to gather a lot of information about homeschooling from every possible source because providing quality education for your child can be a big responsibility. Most parents are of the view that social environment is the best suited for the all round development of the child, but there are some who prefer to teach their kids at home.

There are several placement tests that you can take up for your child. These placement tests give you a feedback about the weaknesses and strengths of your child in spelling, comprehension and reading. Several math placement tests are also available for free. According to experts, the child should attempt at least one math placement test, before choosing any particular math material. Some of the math placement tests are:

. Singapore Math Placement Test
. Horizons Math Placement Test
. Saxon Math Placement Test

Singapore Math Placement Test

First of all, make your child take this placement test to identify if it matches the grade level of your child. In case your child scores more than 80%, this is an indication that he is ready to move on to the next academic level. But, if the score is less than 80%, then it is an indication that you might want to begin at that level.

Scenario 1: Your child takes the Singapore Math Placement Test 4A and scores 85%. Due to this good score, you will move him one level up and take the 4B test. If he scores a 70%, it will be an indication that your child is not able to understand the material present in 4B and then, you can opt to start your child at the 4B level.

Scenario 2: The child will take the Singapore Math Placement Test 4A and score 30%. Because the child has scored so low, you can move him down one level and have him take the 3B test. This time, if the child scores 50%, it is again a relatively low score and so, you opt for the 3A test. The child scores 90%, but based on the low proficiency in 4A and a high proficiency in 3A, you opt for the child to begin at 3B level.

Saxon Math Placement Test:

In this placement test, the Saxon books are skill-level books. It is important to match the child with the text that meets the level of his skills. If your child is successful with one Saxon book, then it is a strong indication that he will be successful with the next Saxon book as well. Listed below are some of the placement tests that are available with Saxon for your child:
