Free assessment software now available to parents

Concerns about their children's academic progress may drive many parents to private tutors or expensive supplemental programs. But this year, with the recession still hanging on, it’s tougher to provide this extra level of educational support, especially for middle-class households.

Recognizing these difficulties, EDUSS, (, provider of educational software for school and home, is offering free software: a downloadable assessment tool and educational package within the reach of any parent with access to a computer. EDUSS software automatically identifies academic areas where the child is weak and sets up a learning schedule.

The program provides a multidimensional approach to learning, offering online education for grades K-8 developed by educational experts. Parents can generate weekly activity reports to check on their child’s progress and use the material to assist teachers in making sure their child catches up if necessary.

To access the free learning assessment software, parents may contact EDUSS for a log-in at and click on the Free Assessment icon.
