DJ on the other hand gets tested in all classes. I gave him his final for Writing, yesterday. I gave him the option to pick the topic, but he could not come up with one for sure. He loves to make up funny parodies to songs, so his assignment is to write a parody about Biscuit, that is the dog, to the tune of, We Will Rock You. He was quite excited, and already has part of it done. It will be posted to his blog and then printed to add to his homeschool evaluation portfolio. Of course he has to use proper Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation.
He did Earth Science for Science class. He did not complete all the lessons, we used CK12, but Science is not a priority. We are working our way through the tests on this website, for the topics he did cover. I just write down the grade and topic when he is done.
For Math, again we used CK12, I am using Math-tests.com for testing. He is testing on the Pre Algebra section not, 8th grade Math. I can print the results as he finishes each section. Not every section has a test yet. He was graded on CK12 for all sections, so I will see if I can print them from his portfolio. I am happy to see he has retained his Math very well.
History, he did Middle Ages. Can not find an online test, so he will probably just write up an essay about what he learned.
Language Arts and Reading: DJ did 9th grade Language Arts through the open network of Utah learning website. He has done a book report for each book he read. I used Easy Test Maker to create a final exam on the things he covered in the lessons. He will not take this until he has finished reading the last book, To Kill A Mockingbird. In the meantime he has been working his way through the Grammar tests on Cengage. Again I print the results as he takes them. I am only picking one test from each section.
All of the websites mentioned are free to use. Please be supportive to them, so they can stay free for all users, not just homeschoolers.
Now for Summer Vacation! Don't worry I will continue to post over the Summer. Summer is when I get to write posts on opinions, hot topics, and fun crafty things to do. So, stick around.
