Hi Jill,
Just a thought, but the way we teach adults (16 up) interested in getting a GED
might work.  

We give an initial assessment (we use TABE test) and then customize a
prescription based on their results.  That way they don't waste time on things
they know but start sequentially at the concepts and methods they don't know and
build on that. We use both books and software.  The prescriptions are keyed to
specific questions missed on the TABE.  When they have finished their
prescription, we retest them.  This process continues untill they are ready to
take the GED Official Practice Test with us, if they pass that, they sign up for
the GED test.

Do you know of any modified texts that meet grade
