Free assessments for homeschoolers

We recommend that students complete our free online reading and math assessments.  After completing the assessments, each child is placed in the lessons according to their skills, not their grade levels.  A child may be placed at an early grade 3 level in phonics and a mid-grade 1 level in geometry, or vice versa.

Kids don’t watch, they interactK5 Awards

The lessons are highly interactive, continually prompting the student to respond. This is critical in maintaining children’s focus and generating positive learning outcomes.

Homeschoolers can create custom lesson assignments (if they want to)

Normally, lessons on K5 are automatically chosen by the system based on your child’s needs. K5 students cannot choose lessons at an inappropriate level or continue to repeat ‘fun’ lessons that they have already mastered.

Homeschoolers often make extensive use of our assignments feature to assign specific lessons to their children at any time.

Full instruction, not just quizzes

All of our lessons start with a full interactive tutorial so kids can learn new materials, not just practice what they have learned elsewhere. Tutorials are followed by practice sessions and finally a quiz.

Feedback is immediate

K5 Learning lets your child know right away when they get something right or wrong. Kids remember better and are more motivated when they receive immediate feedback.

Bite-sized lessons provide flexibility in your homeschooling

Lessons are broken into 5-10 minute segments so that study sessions can be short and flexible. Kids learn better with short but frequent study sessions.

Parents get reports

Parents can access comprehensive reports on their child’s progress at any time.
