West Virginia Homeschool Question

West Virgina homeschool mom asks if she can submit a portfolio, or does her daughter need to take the WESTEST...
I homeschool my 15 yr old daughter. We use a Christian homeschooling curriculum (Rod and Staff). Does she have to do the West Testing here in West Virginia, or can I do a portfolio?Hi Vicki!
It looks like you have the several reporting options - one is testing, but getting a portfolio reviewed is also another option.
" Portfolio -- a portfolio of samples of the child’s work reviewed by a certified teacher. The portfolio itself is not “turned in” to any county official. The parent submits a narrative signed by the reviewer stating whether the child’s progress is in accordance with his/her abilities. The narrative must include a statement about the child’s progress in reading, language, mathematics, science, and social studies and note areas, if any, which show need for improvement or remediation."
