@mwilki7 Thanks! I'll point him to the C++ basics playlist, he can at least see the code a bit more in context.
@CowNationz SoloLearn was great and has a place in the student's learning. But from what I have seen of SoloLearn's pre-OOP lessons, assessment comes in the form of multiple choice or fill in the blank type questions. What this student needs is to write a short program after each unit or topic to exercise that new knowledge in the context of an actual functional (maybe even meaningful) program that he actually designs, writes and debugs himself. I was hoping to find that kind of a "course" on repl.it.
I am happy to search myself so I am also still befuddled that I can't search through other public repl.it online courses. Suspecting I'm missing something...
Oh, I guess I should have clarified my original question that I was looking for courses on repl.it (although SoloLearn was great too!).
@bond235 All the basics/standard intro course topics for a beginner: vars, data types, branching, looping, functions, arrays, maybe 2D arrays, maybe simple strings? A high school student wants to self-study, skip over the intro course at school and head straight to AP Comp Sci. The placement exam is given in C++ because that's what the school's intro course is given in (presumably they just give a version of the course final for placement).
