One-of-a-Kind, Easy-to-Use Assessments and Placement Tests for Homeschooling Parents and Students to Work Through Together
Discover Where Your Students Stand Academically So You Can Meet Them Exactly Where They Are and Guide Them Along Their Homeschool Journey With the Care, Attention, and Rigor They Need to Thrive
Well Planned Start Assessments are not another useless standardized test that tells you little about what your students really know, where they need help, or how to support them.
Our assessments were developed to allow parents to identify exactly where their child needs help and where they excel. Each placement includes guidelines and instructions to evaluate student proficiency while assessing the exact point of a student’s understanding of specific processes, procedures, and information.
YEARLY ASSESSMENTS AND GUIDESAs a mom of five, I began giving my kids achievement tests at an early age. After teaching them how to fill in the small circles and sharpen their number 2 pencils, the kids would walk into classrooms, doors would close, and testing would begin.
Six weeks later, I would receive test reports which gave vague indications of how each child was doing compared to students across the nation. The broad descriptions of achievement in specific areas provided very little useful information to help me know how to strengthen my kids in the coming year.
Over the years, I sought an assessment option that would help me choose the best curriculum, cover information unknown to my child, and fill in any educational gaps. Unfortunately, none of the tests I found accomplished this goal. That needed to change!
Recognizing the need, I began working with the Well Planned Gal curriculum developer Tiffany Orthman, M.Ed., to develop a one of a kind, easy-to-use assessment and placement test for parents and students to work through together. Well Planned Start is the result of our efforts.
