How are assessments or testing whether the child has learned the material done with the Abeca curriculum
When home school or using the Abeka curriculum, how are assessments done? How are assessments or testing whether the child has learned the material done with the Abeka curriculum? Does the Abeka curriculum have an assessment component to it?
I have not personally used Abeka for any length of time with my children, but I do know that they have quizzes and tests in their curriculum. The student reads the material in the textbook and then writes the answers to the questions in the book. Parents can purchase the quiz and test booklets (along with answer keys) to give to their children to see if they remember what they read.
I'm not sure what state you are in, but if you have either testing or teacher assessment required at the end of the year, you just need a certified teacher to look at your child's work. If you are looking for a standardized test for assessment at the end of the year, you will have to check with your school district to see which of the national tests they accept.
If you just want to see if your child has retained the Abeka material that they read, then you can use the questions in the Abeka book
. If your child has trouble with reading comprehension, though, then answering the questions after reading might prove to be very frustrating.
