This test is designed to aid the parent in proper placement of the student into Lifepac curriculum, and includes both the student test and answer key. Testing should begin approximately two grade levels belows the student's current or just completed grade level (except a second grader should not test below the first grade level). This allows for proper grade level placement as well as identification of any learning gaps that the student may have. Once the test has been administered, it is ready to be scored by the parent. Answer keys are inserts in the student test and may be removed once testing begins.
