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.
  • Palliser is expected to keep records of assessment by the home education facilitator.

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.

I have to tell you how impressed he was with how quickly his teachers responded to his questions. The technology worked great and he valued the opportunity to experience online learning. He did say he missed working with his friends, but he now knows he can learn online successfully. Yesterday, we finally received his Grade 10 schedule, and thanks to his completion of CALM, he can access one of the electives he really wanted. His schedule had additional flexibility thanks to Palliser Beyond Borders! Thank you all for your efforts. When I showed my son what his schedule could look like, he was genuinely excited about the coming year.
