PLACEMENT TESTS

Please do not try to push your student ahead of their placement. This will not serve them well and merely set them up for frustration and failure. Math placement tests are required for all new students enrolling in Help Me Homeschool Academy Grades 7 & Up Math Classes. 
English placement tests are required for all new students enrolling in Help Me Homeschool Academy Grades 8 & Up English Classes. 
Students currently enrolled in our Math and English classes do not need to complete a test for the following year. 

The purpose of placement tests is to provide a realistic view of the student’s strengths and weaknesses so an accurate class placement can be made. Class placement is based on readiness as evidenced on the placement test NOT on a student’s grade level or age.  At times, students are often placed in a class at a lower level than anticipated so that the skills needed for future success will be firmly set. It may also be necessary for the student to brush up on the skills necessary over the summer to prepare them for their class in the fall.
