The site offers online practice tests and tutorials in reading, writing, mathematics, language, science, information and workforce skills, as well as a Spanish voice-track. More than 700 lessons and activities align with state standards. SkillsTutor automatically administers diagnostic tests, and guides educators and adult students in creating individual learning plans.
