Home educators must perform a year-end assessment of some kind and teacher evaluations is one of the available options. New Hampshire certified teachers, someone with reciprocal certification, or a teacher currently teaching in a nonpublic school may perform a homeschool year-end evaluation. These assessments typically include a review of the portfolio including work-product samples from the year such as worksheets, writing samples, videos, computer programs, tests, creative pieces, field trip records, and fine-arts performances. Students must achieve "progress at a level commensurate with the child's age and ability" per RSA 193-A. This can be particularly favorable for unschoolers and students with special needs. The evaluation must be signed by parents to be considered complete, so do not sign it unless it is acceptable. Again, keep a copy with the student's records for a minimum of two years. Note that school districts cannot demand to review the student's records, but they may be required for participation in school-sponsored activities, course placement, or proof against educational neglect.

It is important to find an evaluator who understands and supports your family's particular home education approach. Families should contact evaluators well in advance to know what information and documentation are requested, the cost, availability, and to confirm credentials.

This list is not an endorsement or recommendation of any particular teacher or evaluation method.
