PassKey: Comprehensive or Modular Options

The comprehensive PassKey product consists of Reading, Writing, Math (including Advanced Math), Science, and Social Studies. Each subject is available as a separate module, allowing you the flexibility to purchase for specific needs.

PassKey Reading Levels
Because PassKey is a supplementary product designed to be used by students with a wide range of skill levels, PassKey's levels are identified by reading level instead of grade level. That means that the reading level is controlled at the last grade listed. The equivalent reading level to PassKey lesson levels are:

  • Level 1 = reading level grades 1.6-3
  • Level 2 = reading level grades 4-5
  • Level 3 = reading level grades 6-8
  • Level 4 = reading level grades 9-11
  • Level 5 = reading level grades 12-12.9
  • Level 6 = reading level grades 12-12.9

PassKey Science Screen

Lessons in Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry, and Physics are designed to help students prepare for proficiency test success. These lessons also provide a solid review of core science topics.

Science lessons also bring another dimension to PassKey, Activity. An Activity section is part of each Science lesson. This section fosters critical thinking, collaborative projects, and a way to approach science more experientially without having to invest in additional science software and equipment.

A glossary is also part of the Science module, allowing students to expand and strengthen their science vocabulary from within the lesson itself.
