I realize this is an older thread, but I just wanted to toss my 2 cents out there anyhow. In ohio you have a choice of 3 options:
You can have your children take a standardized test
You can have any certified teacher review your portfolio and send a narrative to the school district or if the superintendent agrees - you can review the portfolio and send your narrative into the superintendent

Personally, having a teacher look at the portfolio and sending their assurance that the student is up to date sounds best to me. There are a few groups that list local assessors who even help you discover what the benchmarks are.

Lastly, there are the Ohio Academic Content Standards - at the ohio department of EDU - that you can download for each grade level. It specificially outlines what children in each grade need to know. Our family uses this as a loose outline when we are planning for the years and preparing portfolios at the end of the year so we know if we have covered most of what is 'standard'.
