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 (private) 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 site also shows which states have reciprocity with an interstate agreement program. It is also an opportunity to have any particular questions addressed which may be particularly important if your child has a learning disability. There is no particular check list or form for evaluations. Teachers and families are free to use a wide variety of ways to show and determine the child demonstrates progress. At a minimum, the evaluation should list the child's name, birth date, and address, date of the evaluation, the teacher's name and credentialing number (or if the teacher is at a private school, the name of that institution), and have a spot for the parent's signature. It is very important that the evaluation specify that the child has or has not demonstrated "progress at a level commensurate with the child's age and ability" per RSA 193-A. It is helpful, but not required to include a brief description of what materials were reviewed and the teacher may provide additional feedback, recommendations, and suggestions for the next academic year.

Some standardized tests have particular requirements for administering their exams, such as it being proctored by a non-family member with particular certifications or designations. Some of the individuals and organizations on this list may be willing to serve as proctors; contact them for more information. Many local libraries offer proctoring services at no charge; contact your library for more information. We know Exeter Public Library, as well as others, are happy to make the necessary arrangements for resident families.

With the growing interest in home-based learning communities, including homeschool pods and microschools, we are adding more education professionals who offer various tutoring services. Check our Support Groups page for co-ops and microschools that offer educational services to families.

This list is not an endorsement or recommendation of any particular individual, organization, teacher, tutor, or evaluation method. Some of the people and organizations listed below offer additional services such as exam proctoring and tutoring.

If you are a teacher or tutor and would like to be added to our list, please contact us at info@granitestatehomeeducators.org.
