    Default standardized test BEFORE finishing t4l lesssons

    OK....here's my dilema. My boys are scheduled to take their end of the year test (the standardized one) May 18th. They were going to end school the Friday before. I just realized they haven't finished all the lessons yet. I'm worried that will have an impact on their test scores.
    Have any of you had your kids tested before they actually finished all the lessons? ****sigh**** now I'm stressing ***sigh***

    A common misconception is that ANY curriculum will cover EVERYTHING a student is likely to encounter on that year's standardized test. When taking a test, a student will rely on everything he has learned/retained so far, from all sources (life experiences and prior years' work). A couple of weeks should not make a substantial difference in his score.

    Please let us know when you have the results! Time4Learning users usually perform quite well on standardized tests.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!
