ASSESSMENTS for Ohio must be mailed in at the end of the school year, usually with  notification forms for the coming year. They are signed by a certified teacher, stating that your child is progressing to the best of his/her ability.

Several homeschooling or homeschool-friendly certified teachers provide this service. You can choose to assess using testing, or if you school with  a less structured approach, you can have a teacher look over a portfolio, (samples of the year's learning activities).  Forms are optional, but you can find and print both forms at  h-i-o.org,
