I am required to test my children each year and the test results are in.

I have 4 children but I test 3: There ages and grades are: 11 (5th), 9 (3rd), 7 (1st).

I only use the literature studies and a math program. I alternate between chapter books and picture books. I would say we do more picture books though - at this time. I found it to hard for me to do a beyond and a FIAR at the same time.

Their scores on everything ranged from average to very high. On one test my oldest did not miss any questions. According to the papers she tested at a 9th grade level and this is the child the "system" told me would never progress much further then a 2nd grader.

If you ask me literature based studies work!!!! :clap:

Now I'm starting to wonder...I could have sworn I replied to this post last night!

Anyways, this is what I said.

Congratulations to you and all your children!:clap:

The mystery is solved! I see you posted on the Beyond board, too. Whew! I was beginning to wonder about myself!:lol:
