Why This Product?
Dear Home School Parent,
As a father of three adult children, all home schooled, I understand the challenges that home education presents. During the elementary grades, two important questions most frequently asked are, "Are my children performing academically at grade level?" and, "How do I know?" At the junior high level, the question uppermost for most parents is, "Is my student acquiring the basic skills necessary to successfully start high school level study?" Many parents attempt to use the few evaluation instruments available on the market to answer the above questions. Others utilize a variety of assessment techniques recommended by textbook publishers, or employ private assessment services. But, these products and services may be very expensive, and give only indirect information or simply compare one student to another.
Holding to the high academic standards that Basic Skills Assessment and Educational Services is known for, the ELO (Essential Learning Objectives) Quick Assessment series is designed to fill the gap that achievement tests and other products leave. Now available for grades one through eight, each ELO Quick Assessment is a comprehensive assessment tool, it is useful for evaluating and tracking academic success. Using primarily an objective testing format and measuring precise learning outcomes, it delivers accurate, easy-to-read results. Parents are empowered to identify specific skills mastered as well as those the student does not possess, all at a reasonable price.
This product is backed by the Basic Skills promise of high quality and useful results every time. We thank you for your purchase and look forward to serving you and family during your home schooling years.
