Is It Necessary to Take a Placement Test?
Of course, if you want to find the perfect starting level for your child’s ability through the Reading Eggs program, you should take them in the placement test which is designed to place your child on the proper starting lesson.
On the Reading Eggs program, the students will be presented with a placement test before the first lesson is ever launched. The students are able to choose to pass the test and begin at lesson 1 in either Reading Eggs or Reading Eggspress or also take the placement test and advance to a lesson which is more instructionally in tune with their current learning abilities.
When they take the placement test. They will encounter a series of questions which incrementally get harder as the test goes on. Additionally, each set of five questions will be aligned to the skills which are covered in each successive map of the program.
When the students miss three questions, well, the test will end and they will be put on the correct map to start working. Apart from utilizing this test at the beginning of each school year, however, you should know some of the other placement capabilities that Reading Eggs offers.
