Rated a Helpful Review
Pros:Add/delete units, projects. Generates letter and/or percentage grades; Tech support great.
Cons:Lessons/tests, must enter the correct word or marked wrong. Parent can change the grade.
The Bottom Line: If you are looking for a top-notch education product that is easy for parents to use, is thorough, and allows self-motivation/learning, you will love SOS. Visit www.aop.com to learn more.
We were looking for a home school program that would be self-led and thorough and found Switched on Schoolhouse. We are using 6th and 4th grade levels and are very pleased with them. This is a program that can take the kids through high school. A typical day goes like this: the child logs in and sees their assigned work for the day. A typical subject takes about 30-60 min to complete. Once a subject is completed the next days work is released. If the child would like to move on, he can and so 'get ahead'. There are built in projects and science experiments that the child would need to do off computer and would extend the learning day. If the child misses day(s) due to illness, etc, the parent can go in and regenerate the lessons so none of them will show as overdue. Your other option is to just leave the little "!" and let the child work a little harder to get caught up. Since the SOS program generates grades, you can use the report card feature to print grades for your charter school, or your own school records on SOS letterhead. We are very pleased with this company as regards it's tech support, its product and it's ease of use. We reccomend it highly!
