Placement Tests & Recommendations

 

Caution: The Saxon Placement Tests posted at the end of this page may place students in a lower level than necessary. Please see our general grade-level recommendations below. 

 

 

4th - 7th Grade

Unless there is a learning disability, students in grades 4 through 7 should be placed in the corresponding math course as listed below. The first 30 lessons of each text review all the concepts from the previous text. This may not be review to your student so it may take longer to get through these lessons. We recommend using a self-paced timed method for students to work on math 4-5 days weekly, depending on their age. At the end of that time, regardless of how much of the lesson is completed, the student should stop and pickup where he/she left off the next day. This makes it very easy to transition to Saxon from another curriculum and fill any gaps while ensuring the student is not overwhelmed or frustrated. See the Teacher's Guide linked on the product page below for details.
