Essential Skills Advantage Review

Essential Skills Advantage Review

Essential Skills Advantage is a complete online program for Reading and Language learning ideal for children in grades K-6, but it can also be very helpful as remedial work for your older students. As part of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew, I was chosen to do a review of this program and have been given a one year subscription to their premium plan which I've used with my 13 year old son, so we fall into the category of remedial work with older students.

This online program for kids has been a great addition to our homeschool! My son loves to be on the computer, so why not let him learn while he's at it! It's also provided a break from the usual book learning that we've been using in our homeschool. More importantly, it has enabled me to go back and fill in some gaps in reading and language concepts with my son. We love the variety of concepts that we can choose from as we log in to our online education provided by Essential Skills Advantage. The wealth of learning activities makes me happy as his teacher, and it makes my son happy because he doesn't get so easily distracted and bored. There is always somewhere else within the reading program for him to go in order to keep learning.

I love that I can track my son's progress in the Parent Portal. The student information sections allows me to see what programs my son is working on. Next to each program, I can see more detailed information such as date and time stamps, his number of attempts at answering, or if he's mastered a concept. My son likes to see his progress too, and can do this by selecting the star button displayed on the screen to view his scores. He also has the progress bar that is displayed to show his overall progress within the unit.
