Cute test, I got a 68 which is "Combined Parent & Child Directed".  After reading the Traditional and Teacher ones I guess the one I got does best describes my teaching style.  We do state testing but we don't do quizzes and test every week to direct our learning, and although the children do read classical literature, they also read so many other books since they enjoy reading so much, so I don't focus on just that type of reading for their schooling.

I got a 63

Combined Parent & Child Directed:
Parents who choose a combined Parent and Child Directed teaching style feel more confident in their family's ability to decide what's important to study and what isn't. The types of curriculums available for this style involve more hands-on creative activities and also more independent study and thought time. Many times nature and art play a larger role in the lesson plans. There is more emphasis on your child's personal interests and imagination. The use of varied curriculums works best with this type of teaching style.

I got a 38.  I think it's exactly right.

Unschooling or Child Directed:
Parents who choose an Unschooling or Child Directed teaching style base their approach on the interests and natural learning patterns of their individual child. This style avoids use of textbooks, reviewing, quizzing, or even formal testing. The child's natural curiosity and interests are the key to the daily activities. There is a large emphasis on imagination, nature, art, music and almost no formal curriculum is used. There is no use of lesson plans, a defined "school" time, or even any type of grading. The child's environment, though controlled, is used as the bases of learning. A great curriculum choice for this type of teaching style is Unit Studies. Unit Studies allow the child's interests to control the basis of study.
