Choosing the County Report or the Progress Report

by | Jan 9, 2023 | Testing

The homeschooling law requires that assessment results be submitted to the county by June 30 when students are in grades 3, 5, 8 and 11. For those students, our County Report is appropriate.  Since ALL STUDENTS must still be assessed annually and must meet acceptable progress standards, our Progress Report is designed to help parents know if their student has met the requirements for “acceptable progress” in years when the results are not submitted to the county. 

Both the County Report and the Progress Report are WV-specific.  Both reflect the necessary calculations to determine how the child’s test scores compare with WV law requirements. 

The law requires that students annually make acceptable progress – as defined in the law.  If not, remediation is required.  The second consecutive year that acceptable progress is not made, additional evidence of appropriate instruction must be submitted to the county.  This is applicable for ALL STUDENTS IN ALL GRADES.

At the time of testing registration, parents will be given the option of either choosing one of the two reports or choosing not to receive a CHEWV report at all. Reports will not automatically be sent — the parent must request it if they wish when they register for testing.

In all cases, annual assessment results must be kept on file for three years.  Questions?  Email
