As a personal journey, evaluating YSS is challenging.
However, some settings will require formal assessment – health classes in particular – and for such settings your child’s performance will be based upon assessments created from the content of the book, not on your child’s personal interpretation or experience. Your teacher may also assign projects and research stemming from course material that can be graded in the traditional manner. Additionally, your child’s effort and the amount of respect he shows fellows students will also weigh into any assessment given.
Should you think that your child is struggling with something academically or emotionally, we encourage you to ask your child how she is feeling and/or to reach out to your child’s teacher to discuss your concerns.
Again, you can also email us if you have questions.
