    Default Passing or failing 5 kids

    How do you determine whether or not your students pass? Is there a tool to help in this process? Does it matter when you start the next year?

    Hi, Shannon. When you are homeschooling, you direct your child's education, so you determine the schedule. It does not matter when you start or end. Homeschoolers often school right through the summer, take the entire month of December off for the winter holidays, school in the evening after parents are finished working, school one-month-on-one-month-off or any number of other schedules to suit their family's needs.

    You also decide what your child needs to do to "pass". If you mean pass a single activity and go on to another activity, eighty percent is a popular point at which many families allow their child to proceed . . . but there are some who do like the public schools and simply allow an activity to be marked with a low grade and there are some who want nothing less than 100 percent on each activity.

    If you mean pass from one grade level to another . . . again, you decide. Some people want their kids to complete all the work in one subject at each grade level. Others let their students try the tests first, and they only do the activities if the child scores low on a test. Still others might notice their student is struggling and decide to place him down a level; or they'll see that the current level is too easy, so they'll bump the student up a level in that subject.

    As you can see, there are many ways to do things, and you can choose what works best for your child and your family.
