Instructions and Information
Our goal is to help you find a starting point in the Language Arts/English
curriculum that is challenging, but not too difficult. Your student
will complete at least two assessments (possibly several). You will
use the scores from these assessments to find K12's placement recommendation.
Language Arts/English Placement Assessments are offered for all
grades through middle school and consist of up to three steps:
- Step 1, for all grades: Administer the appropriate Reading Placement
- Step 2, for grades 3-middle school only: Administer a Language
Skills Placement Assessment.
- Step 3, for grades 3-middle school only: Administer a Writing
Explaining the Test to Your Student
It's important that your student understands why he or she is taking
the test. Explain that its purpose is to help you choose what your
student learns next in Language Arts/English.
The Test Environment
When you give the test, make sure your student is well rested and
has adequate time to complete the test in a relaxed way. Give the
test in a well-lighted area that is comfortable for your student
and free of distractions and interruptions (maybe the dining room
or kitchen table).
These assessments are not timed, but you should allow 30-60 minutes
to complete each assessment. Your student may take breaks as necessary,
but we recommend that you try to complete testing within a three-day
