Assessment Test

At Optimus, we believe that monitoring a student's performance enables us to provide the best academic support and guidance. We use our enrollment procedure for our new students to give the student the best experience at Optimus. We have the student take our assessment test to get a better idea of the best strategy to get the best quality education.

The student will take a test modeled after the California State Test (CST) to ensure proper placement in Optimus courses. The student's school grades and standardized test results should be provided for our database.

Students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, or 1st grade are asked to schedule an in-person assessment. Students in or above 2nd grade may complete their online assessments remotely or at Optimus Learning School.

For students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, or 1st grade, the assessment is done face to face with a teacher who will check English and Math skills (such as letter recognition, phonics, sight words, pronunciation, counting, addition, and subtraction, etc.). The assessment takes 30-45 minutes. An assessment for students in these grades is $50. If you decide to sign up for a class or the After School program afterwards, your assessment fee will be credited towards your first tuition payment.

There are two separate computerized assessment tests available for students in or above 2nd grade, one for Math and one for Language Arts. Each test takes approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours to complete. Tests are $30 for one or $50 to take both tests. If you decide to sign up for a class or the After School program afterwards, your assessment fees will be credited towards your first tuition payment.
