I admit that during the testing, I became a little concerned. For most of the tests, he was allotted about 1 hour. Usually, though, he'd pop out after about 10 minutes saying he was done! What? I kept asking him if he was sure he had answered all the questions... :/
Today, I got the results back. Wow. He was in the 80-90 percentile in everything (except one, which I knew about already, but even that one wasn't so bad)! The test said his total test average put him roughly on par with a first semester 11th grader! WOOT! I can't even begin to tell you how VINDICATED I feel!! Ha! I know, I know, I just finished ranting about how tests don't really tell you anything and blah, blah, blah--the kid did AWESOME! A few of his test scores said the grade equivalent was post high school (Math problem solving and science)! Talk about mom pride! No, not pride in what a good teacher I am (*shine my badge here*--but I didn't even GO INTO the room when he was testing. I was tempted to, but I ), but pride in my son who did such an outstanding job. See? Homeschooling doesn't ruin kids. Look what he's learning! Look at the leaps-and-bounds progress he's made in the past 2 years!
Way to go Josh! See? You CAN do anything!! :)
