About This Seminar
Standardized testing is among the most mysterious and frightening educational activities in homeschooling. Many homeschool parents wonder “Why does my state require this? What is the purpose of this? Will this test interfere with the way I want to educate my children?” In this informative workshop, Joanna Lynch shares her fourteen years of experience in testing and evaluation. She will cover the design of the tests, some common abuses and how to avoid them, and some basic score interpretation principles so that you can achieve the full value of these measurement tools.
Participants will be able to
- Understand how achievement testing complements teaching
- Discern appropriate practice techniques
- Determine how to schedule tests for maximum educational benefit
