Narrative Assessments for Ohio Homeschoolers

This post is updated for the 2021-2022 School Year!  

Welcome! I complete narrative assessments for Ohio homeschoolers. The Assessments are portfolio reviews by myself, a certified teacher, that fulfill the Ohio Home Education requirement for 3301-34-04 Academic Assessment Report Option #2.

Please sign up for a day to have your portfolio to me for review   I have released dates for February 1- March 31.  In the spring I will release dates for later in the year. Please check this link to see what is available.  Please note I am only using a sign-up system this year, and you must sign up for a review.  

Please also note that there are more home educators this year, so please sign-up as soon as possible to guarantee a spot. You may send me your portfolio before your sign-up date.  I would recommend this  especially if mailing.  

Your next step is to  download the Freestyle for unschoolers, the Self Reflection for K-8th grade, OR the Self Reflection for High School for families who follow a subject curriculum. Anyone is welcome to use the Freestyle if it works better for their family.  I ask that you fill out the documents, prepare the documentation, and sign them.   Please send copies of work samples as I do not return work samples if sending by postal mail. Please email me for an instruction sheet that tells you where to mail your documents, tells how to send the documents electronically, and answers other questions. I also have online guides.  Please email me for more information. 

Please note the Freestyle and Self-Reflection  are a simply guides to help you through the process.  I developed them to help families create portfolios.  If you have a way you love to present a portfolio let's talk. 

 If you have trouble with the downloads, please email and I will email them to you. Below are links to the guides in Google Documents. I am happy to help you so please contact me with any questions.
