    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.

    9. Great test!

      This is an excellent end of year test for the homeschooled kiddos ! It’s a no hassle set up & reminds me of public school testing ( easy / not intimidating) so I know our program is spot on & their learning @ grade level. Love the not-timed version, it is a blessing for my 10 y/o . It’s difficult to keep his attention for school work for a length of time. Very smart just has a lack of impulse control when it comes to sitting through school work. So I give him smaller block sessions which is why this is an Amazing option for him. As public school offers accommodations for such kiddos, it’s a blessing to be able to offer it for homeschooling! I don’t know how we would have Ever been able to administer him a timed test so again , Thank you for this fundamental option ! on 28th May 2024

    10. The offered testing is a blessing to us.

      I am very pleased with the service provided. When I found Academic Excellence I was pleased. I needed to test my children for end of year and did not know the places to turn to. The non-timed test is perfect for my children. It reduces their stress and allows them to succeed. Thank you. on 27th May 2024
