For the end of the year assessment I would probably opt not to do achievement tests. So how does it work to show what they've learned in each subject? I w...

The good student program required the standerdized test score and is used by high schoolers and college students. Then they have a Steer Clear program for young drivers ( which is what we will m...

Re: Grading a younger guide for a high schooler

OH! I see! thanks for that info. Now, here where we live, the school district does standard testing at certain grades. They don't test every year. His last test was at 8th grade and will be tested once more in 11th, a year from now in April. So, I wonder how that will work. I guess we will have to a...

Re: I wish I had the guts to leave HOD for a year!

LOL! Really! wish I had the nerve to put them in a exceedingly boring, rigorous, killjoy program for just one year so that they would BEG for HOD again! It probably wouldn't even take a year. But then if they were like mine, they might actually LIKE what I thought was boring, rigorous, killjoy!! I f...
