Assessment for Home Education Students

The Home Education Handbook provides this direction for assessment of home educated students.

  • Parent- directed assessment: It is important to regularly review the Schedule of Learning Outcomes to consider how your program addresses all of the outcomes and how you might incorporate all of the outcomes into your program. Update your specific plans following your reviews of outcomes and your assessment of your program needs.
  • The handbook has a sample rubric used to help with assessment and guide student progress to bump up their level of understanding and evidence of performance.

The celebration of learning is so important to help students understand and evaluate their own learning. Here is a sample from a grade 4 student, used with her permission.

"Your education here enables you to think outside the box and learn from everyone and every experience you may deal with. Your time here has shaped you into individuals who can change the world however small or large. You might only have one match but you can make an explosion."

Mahnoor, 12
