We did the Saxon placement test. The instructions say that if he gets below 15 on the first test, that we should either start Math 5/4 (or Math 3 if they are behind schedule). And a 6/5 if he passed
He scored a 13. But he also scored a 13 on the next section (fail=6/5, pass=7/6) which makes me feel like a 5/4 wouldn’t be challenging to him.
I know that there is a lot of review built into Saxon so I am leaning towards trying a 6/5. I don’t want to give him something too advanced, but I also worry about keeping him so 4-5 grade levels below his peers if it is not fully needed.
What would you do in this situation?
