Imagine if...

You understood how your child was doing academically?

You knew specific curricular areas in which your child might be struggling?

You had suggestions for strategies and support to help your child succeed?

You knew exactly what steps to take next, and you felt empowered to take them?

Why do an Academic Assessment?

There are many reasons you may want an Academic Assessment for your child.  It starts with knowing what an important piece of the learning puzzle an Academic Assessment is.  

An Academic Assessment is a like a roadmap.  It provides an objective, standardized measure of your child's learning in the areas of reading, writing, math, comprehension, spelling and vocabulary, composition, listening, oral expression, and critical thinking. If you are looking for concrete information on how your child is doing in these areas then our Academic Assessment will provide you with this information.

You may want an Academic Assessment if:

  • you've been told to get a psychoeducational assessment for yourself or your child and the waiting list is long (see our FAQs)

  • you require documentation for accessibility services in university or college

  • you feel your child is at risk for reading deficits

  • you or your child are feeling anxious about how they are doing academically

  • you are concerned about "pandemic lag" or your child's loss of learning time due to the pandemic and want to know what to do

  • your child has experienced interruptions to their learning due to illness, time away, or other reasons 

  • you want standardized and third party measurement of current schooling progress (homeschool, private or public).

As parents we want the best for our children and as parents we know it helps emotionally when supports our children require are focused, efficient and streamlined.  Our academic assessment will provide one of two outcomes to assist you in these areas.

  • One, knowledge that your child is on target, and that you have nothing to worry about. 

  • Two, details about one or more curriculum areas where your child is behind, giving you critical information on where to focus, strategies and how to start to help them. 

The result is that you will know what to do.  If interventions are necessary you will know what areas to target for support.  As educators, we know the long-term impact from disrupted learning that is not addressed can follow a student into their adult life.  We also know that it is unrealistic to believe that teachers and school systems can solve all learning gaps alone.  If an academic assessment shows your child has gaps in essential learning skills, it means you can do something about it now and work with your child's teacher. 


The Assessment gave us peace of mind. We wanted an assessment for our daughter before she transferred from her Elementary French Immersion program to a private Junior High School where the majority of her classes are in English. We were concerned that her English academic skills might be weak and it was a relief to find out that her academic skills were on par with her peers. Although a few vocabulary weaknesses were noted, Education Advantage gave us great strategies to help her address these over the summer. She is now a thriving and happy student.

Academic Assessment


An extensive academic assessment measuring a range of academic skills including math, language, reading and comprehension, writing, vocabulary and oral expression.

This objective, standardized assessment determines how your child is doing academically and where their performance falls in relation to same-aged peers.

The assessment report provides comprehensive detail that outlines in plain language what parents need to know about their child’s current level of academic skill.

Learning strategies for progress and success are provided.

Our academic assessment can be done in person or through a virtual meeting. Virtual options have additional fees applied related to shipping costs for necessary materials. 

If learning challenges are suspected as a result of this assessment, an additional Psychoeducational Assessment through our partners would be recommended for consideration.
