Student Evaluation Tool Picks Posted on October 11, 2019October 13, 2019 by admin I like using a simple, unusual puzzle as a way to interact with a potential student during an interview.

If you have children, you’ll probably have lots of Easy Readers sitting around your house. But if you don’t, a Dr. Suess book like this is useful for assessing reading level and seeing if the prospective student knows their alphabet yet.
