Should Homeschoolers Take the ACT in 9th grade?
Should a 9th grader take the ACT or SAT? My daughter, Faith, is in 9th grade.  NC requires we administer a nationally recognized test each year, which has been either CAT or Woodcock-Johnson. However, it had been recommended that I use the ACT from here on out to familiarize her with the test in hopes of achieving the highest score for possible scholarship opportunities.  But yesterday, while actually in the midst of composing my email to...

CLEP Exams: Grades or College Credit?

CLEP Exams: Grades or College Credit?
Using CLEP exams in high school can get complicated. What if you just pass the CLEP exam let’s say with the score of 50?  Does that mean that you are given the college credit for that class but are also given a C on the college transcript like on an AP test?  My daughter is studying for her first CLEP and I want this figured out before we put the time and money in to it.Thanks...

SAT Once, Twice, or Three Times Maybe?

SAT Once, Twice, or Three Times Maybe?

Should Homeschoolers Take the GED?

Should Homeschoolers Take the GED?
What is your opinion about a student taking the GED Test before moving onto college.  She will still be learning from home until she is finished with her senior studies and will be preparing for college and the SAT in the mean time.
