FAQ iHomeEd Pennsylvania Homeschool Evaluator request

You will find the Evaluation Request link at the bottom of this page.
However, please read the information below before completing your request.

What you can expect during your evaluation with me:

The law requires me to interview the student and review their portfolio. The “interview” is simply a conversation which takes into account whether a child or teen is talkative or shy. We’ll discuss work from their portfolio as we go through the checklist, but the child or teen will never be asked to perform by reading or reciting math facts, etc. Moms, dads, siblings, and grandparents are welcome to sit in on evaluations, but please make sure your child or teen is comfortable with this.

What goes into a portfolio?

  • 3-10 samples of each subject area your child worked on this year (for example, composition, science, history, math, etc.).
  • Evidence that you taught fire safety
  • Evidence that your child completed the required days or hours
  • Results of the reading/language arts and mathematics sections of an approved standardized test (only in grades 3, 5 & 8)
  • A reading list, including all textbooks
  • Organizing the portfolio is more important to me than making it beautiful.

How long does an evaluation last?

Most evaluations last 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of children to be evaluated and how talkative they are. For large families, the parent may need to be a timekeeper, signaling when 15 or 20 minutes have passed. It’s a good idea to save 10-15 minutes at the end of the evaluation for parents to ask questions.
