    Recommendation Service: Academic Excellence's independent recommendation service is for home educators who would like to receive customized curriculum recommendations based upon the achievement test results. Academic Excellence is not affiliated with any curriculum publisher and provides objective, experienced feedback on curriculum. The Academic Excellence staff have been involved in home education since 1987 and have extensive experience with curriculum providers and the spectrum of homeschooling philosophies.

    The resource recommendations from Academic Excellence are strategically selected to strengthen and improve competency and mastery in academic areas presented in standardized testing. These key selected resources make excellent "tutoring aides" and addenda to any curriculum. Our goal in developing the Academic Excellence recommendation service  is to provide parents with user friendly, economical resources that strengthen students' academic achievement and testing skills; focus tutoring and teaching efforts; and facilitate preparation for and success in ACT, SAT, and college testing. All recommendations are based upon the student's test scores and our staff's extensive experience with home education. Each of the primary recommendations are provided in correlation to individual students' scores to questions and sections of standardized tests. Secondary resources are often challenging, educational games or less formal learning practices. Each recommendation is measured by ease of use by parents; levels of response, enjoyment, and success by students; and affordability. By targeting and addressing students' deficit areas with easy to use and economical tutorial resources, test scores, grades, and confidence elevate and improve. Recommendations in students' areas of proficiency keep students engaged, challenged, and progressing in all subject areas. We have found this to be an easy, economical way to ensure academic excellence and success.

    1. Perfect for our Autism/ADHD homeschooling style

      Having outside testing is important to us as we homeschool our son. However, finding a test that allows him the freedom to test without time limits was a challenge. I also wanted some freedom to proctor the exam myself to incorporate supports for our son's dyscalculia. This test supplies all of these needs in a very affordable and easy to use format. Having instant results is also a plus. We chose the complete testing to give us the broadest evaluation in this style of test. We test at the beginning and end of the school year, which gives us a great side by side way to evaluate how he is progressing in language arts and math. Looking forward to using this test again in the fall. on 20th May 2024

    2. This test was awesome

      My son never took a test in his life and I purchased the practice test first and we did that a week prior. Then we did the real test and he did so good on it. It was set up so easy even for him. It told you how many questions was in each test that was his favorite part he knew what to except out of each test. Will recommend to anyone on 18th May 2024

    3. CAT Review

      Exactly what we were looking for. The untimed test and the fact it was accessible online was absolutely perfect. The CAT test also aided in seeing some of my child's weaker areas so we could focus more on those. on 12th May 2024

    4. Easy, Understandable

      Due to our state requiring us to test every year, we decided to try CAT. It's easy to administer and the scoring is quick and efficient. We used the untimed version, which was super nice to be able to do it whenever we had the time. We will use it again. on 8th May 2024

    5. Easy and helpful

    7. Practice Test

      The practice test was quite interesting. My daughter enjoyed doing the Language Arts. Math is not her strong point, but she managed to study different parts of the math to prepare for the test. on 4th May 2024

    8. Perfect option for my 7yo

      Very good, very comprehensive test. Love the untimed option. It presented a lot less pressure for my son and he performed much better than he would have with a timed test. on 29th Apr 2024
