    Default How can I tell how far she is?

    I know how to run the reports for the week or month, but I don't understand how to see where my homeschooler is in regards to completion of her grade level. Can somebody help me out?

    Thanks

    There are books that you can get called "What Your Third Grader (or fourth or second or whatever) Should Know. This will give you a good guide as to what she should know for each grade level. Many parents feel that if their child is passing each test and quiz with a grade of 75% or higher that they are doing okay. If you really want to push the issue, there are tests you can buy online to see where your child places. I personally feel that as long as my son is moving forward he is doing okay.

    To make sure my daughter was on track and remembering the material. I ordered the Iowa Test. She did great and by her score I could tell she was ready for the next grade level.

    Thanks Rick. That is one of the tests I was thinking of.

    Sadly, they don't have a progress bar. I have emailed them to see if they could let us know. It would make things more simple for parents to know "she is 25% done with 2nd grade math" or whatever. It could also help with goal setting.

    Arcoma, at the beginning of each school year or the beginning of a new subject year I print out the lesson plans. I then go through and count the total number of activities, quizzes, and tests. I then mark the 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 way through each subject. That way I can keep track of how we are doing in regards to the school year.

    I'm sure you can google it. Or ask at your local homeschool group. I've never done testing so I'm not sure where you buy them.

    Did you print out all the lessons per subject?
