Time 4 Learning

Arminda has been using the Time 4 Learning for 8th grade for the past few days. She is enjoying it, but we are both frustrated that we can't figure out how to customize her curriculum. I would like to have her skip some of the activities that she already knows, but I can't figure out how to do it.

I use with my 3rd grader, and it is SO customizable. I can change things easily on that site, and I can give her assessments every few months and the site will automatically adjust her curriculum to skip activities she has mastered and repeat ones she needs more work on. I expected at least as much from Time4Learning as I can do with a free program.

I will keep looking to see if there is a way to customize (or if anyone reading this knows of a way, please let me know!) and I'll update the post.

Update: There doesn't seem to be a way to change her curriculum online to skip activities or repeat ones I feel she needs more work on. But, each assignment has a number that I can look up and have her input that into a box (I think!) to have her repeat the lesson. I'm not sure how that works with skipping lessons, I may have to give her a list of just the assignment numbers I would like her to complete and have her put the numbers in.  We love this program, but I find this extremely inconvenient.
As a member of Time4Learning, I have been asked to review their online education program and share my experiences. While I was compensated, this review was not written or edited by Time4Learning and my opinion is entirely my own. Write your own curriculum review or learn how to use their curriculum for homeschool, after school study or summer learning.
