Community Average Scores – New way to measure homeschoolers performance

“Is my child’s performance good enough?” This question continually plagues the parents of homeschooled children including me. Over last few months, I have tried to explore several answers to this questions. I have made my son take chapter tests as well as periodic exams. However, I have found that scores sometimes can vary depending on evaluators. Standardized tests are another way and they can be expensive. Recently, I came across a very cool site and created an online learning account with IntelliSeeds (www.intelliseeds.com). I was intrigued with their concept of community average scores. Essentially, IntelliSeeds has several hundred practice and speed assessments for Math and Logical Reasoning. When my son does his practice, Intelliseeds generates a detailed report and compares my child’s score with a community average across all their user base. I have found this a neat and cost effective way to get a sense of my son’s performance. I can also compare the speed against an average. My son also enjoys it because it feels like he is playing a game.

I thought it might be worthwhile to share this with other parents.

Hindi movie Race 2 at Regal Hacienda Crossings in Dublin

Bollywood movie Race 2 is playing at the Regal Hacienda Crossings in Dublin starting this Friday 01/25. Its an anticipated sequel to 2008 suspense thriller Race featuring mainstream actors and is first major release of the year.
Looks like Regal at the Hacienda Crossings may be trying to see what kind of a response does a Hindi movie elicit in Tri Valley area. This may be an extension of the trend from other Bay Area theatres like Century in Union City and Fremont, AMC Mercado in Santa Clara, UA in Emeryville where the mainstream theaters find good business in showing Bollywood releases. This is apart of Big Cinemas in Fremont that exclusively shows films from different languages in India.
With increasing Indian origin population in the Tri Valley area, perhaps its a good chance for folks to flock there, and demonstrate that indeed there is a market. If this trend continues then, it will be one less drive to Fremont or Union city.
