What Your Child Should Know
Based on Common Core Standards
Written by Brian Galvin, MEd Chief Academic Officer
Education is not one-size-fits-all. Some students need a challenge to avoid boredom, and others could use plenty more repetition. Ensure that your student maintains an effective learning pace and avoids being left behind on critical skills. Here are three simple steps to help your child have a successful school year.
3 Steps to ensuring a successful school year
1. Find out what they know and what they should know
Since most schools use common core standards, with a little digging you can find out which skills your child should have learned in their last completed grade. However, we’ve done the digging for you. Here are the critical skills your child should know—broken down by grade.
2. Receive a personalized learning plan based on their needs
Once you have the list of the critical skills your child should know, you can figure out which skills they do know, and which skills they may have lost over the break. The easiest way to determine this is to have them take an adaptive assessment. Each assessment takes about 20 minutes.Adaptive Assessments
Our advanced, adaptive assessments show a student where they need help and how to help them.
3. Get insights and suggestions to help them get caught up
Now that you know the skills that suffered, let’s build them up again. Encourage your student to work on those skills with our easy-to-follow instructional videos and practice problems.Practice Problems & Videos
Available in the free Learning Lab, our practice tools and how-to videos help students learn at their own pace.
