Opinions on whether or not to test, or whether or not to pay attention to the results, vary greatly. In today’s world you cannot get away from tests. Tests for a driver’s license, admittance to school or for job advancement are just a few. If practice makes perfect (or at least improvement) you may want to consider having your student test in a variety of circumstances.
The parents whose child has any type of learning disability are most concerned about testing. Randi St. Denis, director of Home Educators Encouragement Alliance will be at the Alabama Homeschool Expo teaching a workshop for special needs students. For more information on the workshops Mrs. St. Denis will discuss whether or not testing is for your child, Contact her through the Alabama Homeschool Expo web site.
