    Default Got my sons end of year standardized test results!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok I had to delete my first post about this cause I messed up on some of the subject scores. I guess it would help to have the results sitting in front of me instead of going from memory.

    So my son has to take a standardized test at the end of each year( or be evaluated by a teacher). Last year his total battery or overall score was 75%. This year he raised it to 85%. He raised his lowest score which was language mechanics(gets that from me punctuation is not my friend) from 17% last year to 55% this year. We still have some work to do but WOW what an improvement. His other subjects varied. Some he raised by a few percent others lowered by a few percent. Since we focused mostly on Language arts this past year we weren't that surprised. He got a stanine score of 6 last year which is average and raised it to a 7 this year which is above average. ( still don't quiet understand what a stanine score is but heck above average is always good ) He was so proud as are his beaming parents.

    Thanks everyone!!!! Homeschooling wasn't something I ever thought of until it was a necessary but I love it and over the summer we finally (after almost two years) got into a grove and I found a system that is working for all of us. Such a great feeling knowing that we made the right decision to pull Bren from ps.
