Entrance Assessments (Grades 3-12)
Entrance assessments are required for new students enrolling at Enlightium for English and math courses.
The test results reveal strong and weak academic skills based on a student’s previous school performance. The appropriate grade level courses, based on a difficulty level, will then be assigned by the student’s counselor.
Instructions for how to log in to take the entrance assessments are available on the Ignitia platform in the “Enlightium Entrance Assessment” assignment.
Entrance assessments are required for students in grades 3-12.

The entrance assessments are designed to assess the student’s academic performance. To ensure we obtain an accurate measure of the student’s academic capabilities, we ask that parents not offer assistance or provide tips.
The student may skip a question if they don’t know the answer by clicking “I haven’t Learned This Yet” in the bottom right of the question. Note, teachers do not provide assistance to students while the entrance assessments are being taken.
Please use the help box to alert us should you become locked out of the test.
Interpreting entrance assessment scores by grade level
The scale below outlines how to interpret scores for entrance assessments. Please do not worry if your student scores below grade level. Our counselors assign courses primarily based on your student’s school academic records and will contact you if needed.
After completing the diagnostic assessment, students are given an overall score in Math and ELA that represents their current grade level; see chart below for details.
Please remember, the purpose of the entrance assessments is to help the counselors determine the academic level of the student in English and math and focus on the student’s strengths.
