Ben did the DOMA assessment a few minutes ago. I knew Abeka was advanced, but sheesh! He placed high-2nd on their assessment and a grade equivalent of high-3rd by TX standards. I still see him as 1st in my mind, though. I know his processing speed. I know which questions he does perfectly every time and which ones still trip him up once in a while.
No. The test was designed for CA, so I assume the grade level it gives you is for CA. It gives you your own state standard, though. I don't know how he'd measure up in other states. The test is very kid-friendly. When he did the reading one, he didn't realize I was testing him. He just thought I'd found a cool website to play with. He knew what the math one was, though.
The score lines up fairly well with Rod & Staff. I looked online at their outline and sample lessons for grades 2 & 3 today, and he already knew a lot of that stuff. (I'm mainly using R&S to help his mental math and speed skills. It's going great.) We'd planned on going with Horizons 2 next year. If I stick with R&S (because I like it), we'll probably rush through 2 (skipping over things that were already covered in Abeka 1) and move onto 3 next year.
