Not all evaluators provided answers to the requested questions. So families may want to ask these questions to help narrow your choice:

  • Which category you fit in for evaluating (certified teacher/administrator/non-public school teacher/school psychologist/"other" ) - see Impressum on this page for definitions.

  • Can you do elementary (K-6) or secondary (gr 7-12) or both?

  • Do you eval for any of the diploma programs, which ones?

  • Can you pre-approve for special needs objectives?

  • Can you do standardized testing? If so, which test do you use?

  • Where are you located? Do you do local evals, travel, or distance online?

  • What do you want families to bring to the evaluation?

  • What kind of log and samples are you expecting to see?

  • Are you familier with unit studies/traditional curriculum (Abeka/BJU/etc.)/unschooling/workbooks (Paces/LifePacs)? Do you have any reservations about evaluating a family who uses any of these methods/approaches?

  • When do you prefer to give evaluations?

  • When do you want families to contact you to set a date for the evaluation?

  • Where will the evaluation be held?

  • How long will the evaluation last?

  • What kind of questions will you ask?

  • How long after the evaluation will it take to get the written evaluation to the family?

  • What do you charge for an evaluation?

  • Do you offer discounts for siblings?

  • Do you see yourself as working for the family, or for the school district?

  • Have you ever evaluated a family for whom you were not able to certify that an appropriate education was occurring, and why? How did you handle this?

  • Are you willing to communicate negative comments to me verbally, without including them in the written evaluation?

  • Will you give the written evaluation to the family, or to the school district?
