Product Description

Emphasizing strong secondary reading and critical thinking skills with scientific materials, this four-unit elective course has been designed to help the student prepare for the GED. Exercises involve reading scientific passages and interpreting graphs, charts, maps and diagrams on topics such as earth and space science, life science, and physical science (physics and chemistry).

Unit titles students will study are:

  • Astronomy
  • Matter and Earth Science
  • Matter, Energy, and Machines
  • Principles and Applications of Biology

This course was designed to help students gain the skills needed to pass the GED exam; it may also be useful as a review for students who have interrupted their education between high school and college; or for those interested in improving their basic skills before entering credit classes.

Switched-On Schoolhouse Features:

  • The ability to save projects to your computer and upload to the SOS database when finished
  • Automatic grading for 80-95% of student work (parents grade essays, paragraph essays and projects)
  • Multiple reports, from format report cards and transcripts to quick daily activity reports
  • Customizable scheduling and easy re-scheduling
  • Text-to-Speech functionality for students to read along while hearing the text; many audio/video files have written transcripts available as well
  • The ability to create your own course or assignment
  • Alternate quizzes and tests
  • Reading and Activity Logs to track activities and books read
  • Attendance tracking
  • Print capabilities for schoolwork done away from the computer-just enter their answers into SOS once you're at home!

    I need a tutor to figure this out!

    I purchased this at the beginning of this school year and was excited for my son to be more independent in his schoolwork. Unfortunately, I'm finding it really difficult to maneuver. It's cumbersome and seems outdated. When he does the lessons, they're GREAT, but working in the program itself....the lesson planner, installation, etc. is really difficult. Now, at the end of the year, it's not showing him as an active student and I can't print-off his grades or completed assignments for his portfolio. I'm going to call for support, but I'm disappointed in how confusing and laborious it seems to be. I'm hoping I can figure it out because I do like the lesson content.
