WHAT ACADEMIC LEVEL IS MY CHILD AT?

Since the A.C.E. programme is individualised, the existing level of performance in each subject of every incoming learner must be determined.

Conventional grade promotion does not necessarily indicate that work has been mastered.

The sequence/order of content of the curriculum is probably also not the same as that of a previous school/programme, which results in gaps in the learner’s progress.

Therefore, academic material is prescribed on a basis of diagnosed levels of academic achievement, and not on the basis of the grade level the learner was promoted to or on the basis of age.

Diagnostic placement testing ensures that students begin at the exact point of their academic needs. Diagnostic testing determines if there are any "learning gaps" that first need attention before dealing with new concepts.

WHERE TO GO FOR DIAGNOSTIC TESTING?

Children from grade 2 and up, who are not yet on the A.C.E. programme, are required to write diagnostic tests before starting any academic work. Home Education Academies have a set of hard-copy tests for parents to purchase, which are then done at the child’s home or at the academy. Alternatively, students may write the tests online. The hard-copy tests are advisable, as these have been adapted to the South African curriculum.

Contact your nearest Home Education Academy for further guidelines on Diagnostic Testing.
