  1. MLA Handbook (7th Edition) https://www.amazon.com/Joseph-Gibaldi-Handbook-Writers-Research/dp/B008WDLBR8/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=MLA+Handbook+7th+Edition&qid=1631050854&s=books&sr=1-3
  2. My young man says that it gets better after that, so stay with it.
  3. Times New Roman 9 ETA: I created it in a Word document.
  4. I just discovered this after paying full price for multiple exams.

  5. I can tell you that strong knowledge of grammar and syntax are truly important in law enforcement, especially in reporting writing. For that reason alone, I'd recommend Rod & Staff English which is solid in both. However, if your son would like the workbook style and videos, then BJU Writing and Grammar seems like the next runner-up, though I don't have any personal experience with it. If your son enjoys writing, then I'd probably recommend Writing and Rhetoric or Rhetoric Alive! by Classical Academic Press, but the aforementioned get the job done without having to add anything. I've never used IEW, as it never appealed to us. Also, I found thread that you may be interested in reading:
  6. I'll piggyback @Rootann's comments and add my own theory. Based on this chart found at CLEP STEP... https://clepstep.com/clep-faq/frequently-asked-questions/ ...as well as comparing the CLEP Official Study Guides and the REA CLEP Study Guide, it seems as though there are two kinds of tests: 1. harder questions and less of them, 2. easier questions and more of them. I assume that the information given during the registration process determines which test you will receive. I am guessing that students with less preparation time receive the harder exam with less questions and students with more prep time receive the easier exam with more questions, but I don't know what the cutoff would be (1 month? 3 months? 6 months? 1 year?). The materials used to study may also contribute to which test is received.
  7. This is a good point. In my state (wherein a semester = 1 credit, so two semesters/full year = 2 credits), every 2 credits taken at the college, the student receives 1 credit. For example, if a student takes a 3 credit COMM 101 class, they will get 1.5 high school credits.
  8. I’d recommend giving a grade. The Real Value of Grades on a Transcript https://www.homehighschoolhelp.com/blogs/the-real-value-of-grades-on-a-transcript Grading Estimate https://www.homehighschoolhelp.com/blogs/grading-estimate
  9. @Melissa B: What made you decide on a 0.5 credit instead of 1 credit each? It is my understanding that you could award a full credit for each. Also, have you considered designating those other courses as honors for passing the CLEP exams? https://www.homehighschoolhelp.com/blogs/4-ways-to-earn-high-school-credit
  10. Does anyone include credit for self-study courses specifically for CLEP exams?

  12. So… our State Department of Education does not create a test form, but the statute requires districts use the questions found on the United States Citizenship Naturalization Test. The state does not establish a defined test window for this assessment. They expect most students will take the assessment in their Junior or Senior year of high school, however, the law allows students to take the test any time after entering the 7th grade. The student may repeat the test as many times as is necessary in order to obtain a passing score. Districts may decide how the assessment is given, i.e. multiple choice, question and answer, orally, etc. Districts will also determine the passing threshold a student will need to meet in order to fulfill the graduation requirement. No, the State Department of Education will not collect students’ test scores. However, schools have to add the completion/passing of the Civics Test to the student’s high school transcript. Civics Questions for the Naturalization Test https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/questions-and-answers/100q.pdf Civics Test Flash Cards https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/flash-cards/M-623_red_slides.pdf Quick Civics Lessons https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/flash-cards/M-638_red.pdf Study for the Test https://www.uscis.gov/citizenship/find-study-materials-and-resources This is a requirement only for government schooled students in our state (not Arizona), but I’m thinking that it would not be a bad idea or even difficult to meet those expectations anyway.
