It really depends on the child as to how long it takes them to complete the work.

If the class is a standard course that's been taught to many kids in the past, then usually there's a standard amount of work to get done for one credit. This would be true of Algebra 1 and science textbooks and such. Some kids will speed through them and some will go slower, but it's still one credit either way. My son got behind in Algebra last year because he just needed time to let it all sink in. He knew if he didn't finish, he would be working on it in the summer. In the end, he did multiple lessons in the last weeks in order to finish when his public schooled friends finished the year.

(By the way, I love Math Relief for teaching Algebra at home!)

Some classes like maybe the computer course you may have to just count hours. A typical high school spends about 50 minutes a day, and some of that is wasted but there is homework too, although I don't think there would be much homework on an elective.

If my student is behind, I allow them to work evenings, weekends, or summers. I also am willing to listen if they feel the workload is out of line. I know my kids best.

Does that help?
