Academic Assessment

Academic Assessment

Academic assessments are generally 1.5 to 2 hours in length. The purpose of the assessment is to ascertain the individual’s current academic standing and the length of time it will take to achieve specific levels of education. Consideration is given to identifiable barriers and the selection of an appropriate testing level. Assessments are administered by a certified teacher. In conjunction with the results from the assessment, the teacher solicits pertinent academic and work history data from the client to assist in formulating realistic results. Assessment reports and quotes are typically submitted within 24 hours.
