How will I know if my learner is performing along the lines of his, her, or their peers in traditional school?
We know families have mixed feelings when it comes to "officially" checking progress and comparing progress to peers. We also recognize that many families experience more stress and anxiety than others regarding the homeschool journey. We offer help and guidance for families who wish to participate in a formal process to measure progress during the year. Standards can have their place in a more traditional Uschool learning plan or in one that looks nothing like a traditional school experience. Assessments and standards can provide our Uschool team and your family with guidance around developing a highly customized plan of learning that you and your child will love.
We have access to a variety or norm referenced and specialized assessments that can serve a varieity of purposes. More importantly we have access to credentialed humans that understand that data has a face and that families need support in understanding what the numbers mean and what they translate into when it comes to meaningful learning. We work with reading specialists, behavior speciailists, teachers of the gifted and talented, and just about any other specialty you can imagine.
