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.

That's great!! He scored really well for 4 years old. I'm thinking about testing Miguel using that It looks very complete does it tell you both national grade level and state grade level?

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.
