GREAT BOOKS ACADEMY PLACEMENT TEST
Please note: completing this placement test is not necessary in order to enroll with the Great Books Academy. It is made available as a convenience, desired by some.
You may wish to take only one, a few, or all of these placement tests. You may discover your starting level with the Academy will vary in each course – that is, you may do well, for example, in 7th grade math and not above 5th grade in grammar. That is fine and very normal. We encourage homeschoolers to begin where they are, in each course selected. Which courses you decide to take, and at what levels, is up to you.
You may grade or evaluate the test results yourself, or you may send them to us for evaluation and our suggestions. We hope you find these helpful.
Please let us know if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
