    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.

    6. MsDisney

      I love the ease of giving this test very easy and simple to do. I will definitely continue to use this test and this company for all my testing needs! on 8th May 2024

    7. Excellent choice for standardized testing

      My children took the grades 11 and 8 tests.
      Instructions are clear. We had no difficulties with the testing process.
      I prefer the paper test to the online test. Sometimes we experience problems with our computers or online connection. Paper is the way to go! We separated the testing into three days in order to work with our schedule.

    8. Excellent test for 3rd Grade

      The test had great instructions and was very easy to complete. I loved how the bubbles were actually on the test next to the answers rather than on a separate bubble sheet. I intend to use this in future grades. on 7th May 2024

    9. Great standardized test option

      I have been impressed with these tests so far. I ordered grade 7, grade 5, and grade 2. The grade 2 seems a little easy, in my opinion, but the older grades are appropriate. The instructions for administering the test are clear. I would definitely order from this company again! on 22nd Apr 2024

    10. Excellent Service

      The package arrived a day early and the test was scored and results were emailed the day after submission. Will definitely use them again for the rest of my children. on 3rd Apr 2024
