The TenMarks program is an online math program designed for grades 3 through high school. Each week, the student receives an email to login and complete worksheets by the due date. Before completing the worksheet, the student can view a lesson about the topic. While completing the worksheet, the student can review the lesson or receive hints  as to the answer. 

The TenMarks program is available to parents, homeschoolers, and public school teachers. 

The Queen's Assessment:
I was a bit leery of receiving this product for review. Since it is geared to 3rd grade and higher, I thought that it would be too difficult for the prince who is in 2nd grade. After receiving the program, I found that we could work with it to review some topics and learn about a few new ones. 

We were able to re-arrange the order of topics to ease into the ones that we haven't covered yet. We were also able to pause the program to take a break over Christmas. We didn't have to take "homework" on our trip, and we didn't come home to a bunch of worksheets when we got back. 

The prince really liked the reward games that were built into the program. Since we don't have video games around the palace, this was his chance to play some. 

On the worksheets, you can back up to previous questions and make corrections as you go along. At the end of each worksheet, the student is given an immediate "grade" and can go back and see why they were missed and try again to answer them correctly. With the tests, this is not the case. As soon as you hit "submit" the question is gone forever. So, if you submit the answer and in that split second realize you meant "70" instead of "7", it is too late. I would like to see that differently. I think you should be able to check your work before a final grading. The tests are also timed and I think that gave the prince a little bit of trouble. He knew he had to get done before the time was up and I think it caused some careless errors.

I thought some of the visual references on the worksheets were not very helpful. Some were hard to see and some were still vague enough to not get a true answer.
