In the Charlotte Mason method, the goal of assessment is to find out what the child knows while respecting him as a person.
Our goal is not to interrogate the child in order to find out what he doesn’t know. It is also not our goal to spur the children
into a competition to see who has the best score among them.
Our goal in assessing a child is to find out what he, as a person, has assimilated and made his own; what is now a part of himself and his life — what he knows.
So if we want to find out what the child knows, rather than what he doesn’t know, we need to word our questions carefully.
