When-ish do you finish school year? And have your child evaluated or tested?

Hi everyone. I wanted to ask, if you are doing school by school year, (i.e. 3rd grade starts approx. in this month, and ends in this month) What month do you typically end the school year?
And if you have your child evaluated, or tested, when do you typically do it? (What month)
Tks.

we are in Mo so we don't have to have our kids evaluated or tested. I do end of the year test on my own mostly just to keep for my records to show there knowledge at the end of the year. I am doing it roughly in june. our school year runs from june 30 to june 30th but we schedule a vacation time around july and august. they take about 30 days off of sit down school we still clock elective hours but the kids dont know it.

We test mid April. By our schedule, we should be done with the year mid May. We test together with our homeschool group using Terra Nova every year. Much easier to get everyone together for two afternoons and split the kids up by grade. I don't like giving tests to my own kids. They read me too well and testing four of them would take forever and bore me to tears.

August til June. We follow our public school schedule .We do not take every break they do so we tend to finish up a few weeks before they do.

We school basically year round with a lightish schedule in the summer. We will finish up this year at the end of April/beginning of May.

We don't have to test here so we don't/won't test.

We are roughly Aug-May with Thanksgiving thru Christmas off, but we've been really slacking on science this year, so we'll be having summer science to catch back up. No testing required here.

We home school year round and move forward when we've accomplished all we want to.

There is no testing in Idaho and I do not voluntarily submit for them. I oppose them.

We follow a PS schedule (labor day to june) because DW is a teacher and we want to be off when she is, though most of June is gardening and the like. We won't test until required by law, though I submit quarterly reports and an annual narrative assessment (required). We call it whatever grade they would be in if they were in traditional school, but do the work they are ready for (we start all four processes in first grade, but our PS doesn't introduce multiplication and division until 3rd grade).

I plan on roughly following the public school schedule- but we will likely finish at the end of May and take a break through June since we are on vacation then. Then we will loosely start back up in July (mostly I just plan to have her keep working on reading and some math review) and then will start full force again in September.
