This year has been fighting all year very little work actually being done. I honestly feel that I don't have enough for his portfolio review and I'm freaking out. So I've decided things have to change next year. I'm thinking of using MBTP at the 7-9 level because he hates writing and is a bit immature. I using 1 unit at a time so not to make me stress. However he knows a lot of science, reads at a high level and hates doing anything project with his hands. However when I do get him to do a project he's very proud of the results. I need something that takes the pressure off getting things right, and perfect verses being proud of the finished project. I honestly just want something fun that will complete the requirements but it's hard for him to have fun and not stress out or be over stimulated to the point I'm stressed out.

How do you think this will work out? How do I put together a portfolio with such little work that actually shows his ability?

WV doesn't allow CAT, parents can't give tests . Our portfolio review is next Friday. I think it's just because the requirements aren't clear enough to me. I'm worried about putting to little at 10 assignments a subject. I've decided to have him go through all his stuff and put stickers on things he's proud of. We're going to look at all the stickered papers and put together his portfolio with that.

I would expect a portfolio to show only the best work anyway. I wouldn't expect an evaluator to sift through every. single. thing. you do. I wouldn't worry too much.

Ditto. Don't stress yourself over it too much. What have you done for it in the past?
