Welcome to The Classical Homeschool Podcast. At the Classical Homeschool Podcast, our heart is to take on the work of wrestling through the, sometimes difficult and philosophical, ideas presented throughout the classical education movement and bring them down to earth, specifically and practically for the classical homeschooling mom.
This week, the topic of assessment and how it fits into classical education and our homeschools. In this episode, the homeschooling mom can find what is assessment and how we can assess our students. Assessment is more than a simple exam; it is a discernment of where our students are in the growth of virtue and the liberal arts. Assessment is a positive experience for our students it allows them to learn how to discern and self-edit. Hopefully, this episode will offer you a perspective of assessment that blesses you and your homeschool.
“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ESV
