  • Great opportunity to familiarize your student with the test interface as well as exposure to the types of questions they’ll be asked on the big test at the end of the year.


  • Moby Max - MobyMax is tailored to your child's individual needs, and I think you will be very impressed by how fast your child will excel using MobyMax.  The website features placement tests that accurately identify where your child excels, and where his or her "missing skills" are.  It then provides targeted instruction to "fill in" those missing skills.  Finally, it gives your child systematic review sessions that ensure that your child retains 100% of what he or she has learned. Username is 6-digit student number (no "s") and Password is stars.
