Mastery of State Standards

Postby saytutor » Thu Feb 16, 2006 4:10 pm

Homeschool Parents,

Meeting state standards is a challenge for homeschoolers everywhere. We now have the ability to assess against your own individual state’s standards.

Our system identifies skills your child has mastered and has not mastered. Checking for math and reading mastery has never been simpler.

Reports are detailed, thus becoming a vital part of record keeping. Now there is proof that your child has mastery of the required state standards.

Upon identifying gaps in state standards, we can provide prescriptive lessons to address skills for complete compliance with these standards.

Currently this system is helping over 11,000 students nationwide. A State Standard Assessment will cost $129.95 with $100 off for homeschoolers.

Presently, this service is not offered to homeschoolers. We would like to know if you think this service would be used by homeschoolers. We would appreciate it if you could answer our poll question.

Regards,
Penny Kincaid

Standardized assessment is always good...

Standardized assessment is always good - with the caveat that individual homeschool test results be kept private from the public school system. The only thing the public schools should have access to is the overall scores for each age / grade category. Homeschoolers value their privacy.

Also, while identifying weak areas is good, prescriptive lessons probably won't be necessary.

State Standard Assessment Reports

Postby saytutor » Sat Feb 18, 2006 7:59 am

Thank you for your response.

State Standards Assessment Reports will not be shared or sold to any outside source. They are for parent use only.

Our reports show mastery of state requirements. These reports could be a vital part of record keeping for the homeschooling parent.

Some parents gain confidence by knowing how their child compares to other children in their state.
