snazzy Posted September 3, 2012 Share Posted September 3, 2012 Quick background: we move a lot - new school every year until now (no more moves!), 4th grade son, new school district tested him to be much higher in math than 4th grade but they don't know the exact level because they cannot accommodate him into higher level math until he is older so they stopped testing him. They are putting him in EPGY in the library during math time as a compromise (we will see - has yet to happen though) I've read online that with EPGY you start at your age appropriate grade level or even below so that you get used to the system. What method does EPGY use to accelerate the child to their actual grade level? I ask because if he has to sit through computer lectures on how ratios work or something he will be bored to tears (or, more likely, just have the program running while he reads a library book). Essentially - do they pretest? (or can you make it pretest?) Also, how does the program handle kids with holes in their education? Given how much we've moved, I can see that is a real possibility.
