Skills and Self Assessments

Page history last edited by Lisa 9 years, 9 months ago




There are many different areas of academic skills that we can assess. We have a reading software and analysis program to help students better understand how they are reading and how they can be more efficient with their reading strategies and comprehend more. There are writing assessments we can work with you on to determine what kinds of writing skills development you might need. And we can assist you with better learning math and other quantitative concepts through some free online resources such as Khan Academy and Quizlet.
