If you homeschool or unschool in Okaloosa County, Florida, then you may need a yearly evaluation. Intuitive Behavioral and Educational Strategies will provide a Florida certified professional who is qualified to complete your evaluation. This service is only available in Florida at this time.
Many people wonder what to expect during an evaluation.
I speak with both parent and child. I follow Florida state law which says, “A teacher selected by the parent shall evaluate the student’s educational progress upon review of the portfolio and discussion with the student.” Your portfolio may include book/reading logs, curriculum lists, work samples, field trip photographs with explanations, co-op or class activities paperwork, activity logs, etc. If you are concerned about what belongs in a portfolio, please contact me. I realize that unschool portfolios may look slightly different than homeschool portfolios. Evaluations usually take a half hour per student or less. (I do not give tests. I do not quiz children.) The state law can be found here.
