I started Raven my senior year and needed to make up 3 credits on top of the normal workload. The administration at Raven recognized my pitfalls and worked with me to get where I needed to be. I graduated on time - something that would not have been possible had I stayed at my Public High School in North Pole.

We have been with Raven Correspondence for three years, it has been a great experience. I have tried a few other Alaska homeschool programs but Raven has been the best thus far. I would recomend this program to anyone who is considering a homeschool program!

About the tests


In 2010-2011 Alaska used the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in science. The SBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alaska. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

About the tests


In 2010-2011 Alaska used the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in science. The SBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alaska. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

The different student groups are identified by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
