SkillsTutor At Home, owned by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt offers online self-paced Math, Reading/Language Arts, and Science lesson plans for kids K through Grade9+, all aligned with national and state standards.

The self-paced lesson plans use an
Assess, Assign, Achieve methodology to keep kids on track, and to help them achieve maximum success. Each unit of study starts with a pre-test to assess the child's knowledge of a subject, utilizes the assessment information to develop and then assign an individual learning path for each child, and concludes with a summative assessment, and continued educational opportunities (if a topic needs to be revisited, it is automatically placed back into the learning pathway for additional coverage).

A parent is able to see all pre-and post-test results that occur during the
Assess, Assign, Achieve process, so it's easy for the parent/teacher to keep track of what, and how their student is doing.
