  1. I found this guideline for homeschoolers applying to University of Maryland: If you’ve been home-schooled, you should provide with your completed application a transcript with the following: course descriptions, books used, methods of evaluation and grades received (credit contracts). You should meet the same minimum high school course requirements expected of all applicants; your SAT and/or ACT scores will be strongly considered in the review of your application. Please also include general information about your home schooling program or agency and a letter of recommendation from an academic professional as well as the home schooling teacher/parent. If you’ve taken college-level courses, you should also include an official college transcript with your application. So what is a credit contract? Is this just a guideline for how each course was graded? (I also found it interesting that UofMD spelled it home-schooled. That made my first couple searches come up empty.)
  2. I am making my daughters transcripts to submit to college this week but I am unsure how to award credit or give grades to courses not yet completed. How is this done?
  3. I know 4.0 is an A, but what if the course is an honors course. Do you give higher gpa's?
  4. Well, here it goes. TRANSCRIPTS. I'm in 11th grade, and horribly so, as I have yet to construct a transcript/course descriptions for 9th, 10th, and 11th grades. Nothing. Nada. I've only started recording grades in 10th, so let's just say everything is a bit frazzled. Where could I start? What are some recommended formats? I'm currently taking AP Euro History, AP Literature (both with PA Homeschoolers), Psychology, Algebra II, German II, and an elective of film editing with Premiere CS6. Remember, this is a student who's considering majoring in Creative Writing or Comparative Literature or Germanic Studies at colleges such as Northwestern and UC Berkeley - even Columbia. If you all could point to a path, send a message in the sky, hand me some directions, something, I will be eternally grateful. Thank you! :D
  5. Over on the High School Board, Lori D has pulled together a lot of dates and considerations for high schoolers and for those of us who are pulling triple duty as parent/teacher/counselor into a High School Timeline. It's a great thread to get you thinking about what sorts of things you need to stay on top of. If you're working on planning 7th, 8th or 9th grade, it would be worth taking a look.
  6. We have been using Sonlight as a family for 8 years. As our oldest heads to high school next year, I am wondering will Sonlight see us through? Anyone using Sonlight in HS? Any suggestions how to separate, grade, & record for purposes of transcripts?
  7. I'm having trouble deciding how to list a dual enrollment class on my son's transcript. It is a class that has a separate lab, however, the lab is mandatory to take with the lecture. The class and lab are registered for separately and graded separately (as I'm sure all cc class/labs are). So do I list these separately on ds's transcript or do I list them as 1 class since you cannot take one without the other? And if I list them as one class, how do you combine the grades (if he makes an A in one and a B in the other as he did his first semester)? For example: DS took Music Theory II for 3 credits and Ear Training Lab II for 1 credit. He made an A in each class. On his high school transcript, would you put "Music Theory II w/lab, credit 1 (I only give 1 credit on transcript for 3-credit college courses), grade A? OR would you list it like this... Music Theory II - 1 credit 1, grade A Ear Training Lab II - ? credit (not sure how much credit to give), grade A How have you moms who have BTDT handled these types of cc courses on your homeschool transcript? And just so you know, I've gone back and forth on whether even to list these music theory classes as academic electives or on the back of the transcripts as activities. DS really does take these classes for personal enrichment and that is why we had them as activities at first. But, he makes such good grades in these classes that they validate his "mommy grades". I'm torn on this one.
  8. DS did the first part of us history this year in 8th grade and he also completed algebra 1. I know those are typically high school courses so should I include them on his high school transcript? If so, where on the transcript would I put them?
  9. I'd like to hear if anyone has had any experience with colleges NOT accepting their homeschool foreign language. This is from the Florida Home Education Foundation webiste, and while it is referring to admission requirements for Florida colleges/universities, I would think that most would have similar requirements. ""Will the foreign language courses taught in a home education program meet the requirement for admission to a Florida public university?"" """No. A student is required to have successfully completed 2 years of language in a Florida high school or 2 semesters at a Florida college. The foreign language requirement must be met through courses taken in a public or private school, the Florida Virtual School (FLVS) or in a Florida college.* Some universities may accept a passing score on CLEP tests, however, you will need to check with the institution your child plans to attend. If the courses are taken through dual enrollment or after high school graduation, the 2 semesters will be counted as electives. *A Florida university may accept foreign language from an accredited out-of-state high school or college, however, before you register for the course be sure to check the requirement of the Florida university your child hopes to attend.[/color]"""
  10. Would you give your child credit on a transcript for an SAT prep class taken through a high school co-op? It's a year-long class (meeting once per week for an hour and a half, with other assignments to be completed at home). The course description is as follows: This is no ordinary SAT Prep Class! While polishing those skills tested on the SAT, we will have fun doing it! We will play Jeopardy, watch Standard Deviant videos, and include other activities to make this class interactive and engaging. Content will include all 3 sections of the SAT. Materials to be used include College Prep Genius (which students will be required to purchase- we will obtain a discount code to give you), a program used by Jean Burk, whose sons earned fully paid scholarships. Other materials include the SAT Prep video series by Standard Deviants, Becoming a Problem Solving Genius - A Handbook of Math Strategies, 100 Math Tips for the SAT and How to Master Them Now!, The SAT and College Preparation Course for the Christian Student, Ace the SAT Writing - Even if You Hate to Write, IEW High School Essay Intensive - SAT Preparation and College Application Essay Strategies, College Board The Official SAT Study Guide (which is highly recommended for all students to have). Also, if you would recommend including it on the transcript, how would you title it? SAT prep? Introduction to Study Skills?
  11. I will be using Jacobs - A Human Endeavor for my 12th grade daughter next year. She has taken Algebra 1 & 2 and Geometry and needs one more math but does not want Pre Calc or anything more advanced. I need suggestions on what to call this course for her transcript. Advanced Math is out (because it is not advanced) and so is the actual book name. The name needs to mostly look good on her transcript without making her look math smart (which she is not). Thanks,
  12. I've been dragging my feet for some time, but earlier this week I finally created a transcript for my ninth grader. The pressure was on, since he needed one for the dual enrollment classes he's taking in the fall (registration was this week), and I'd seriously panicked about this task. I created one with no grades and a separate set of pages describing course work. I wrote about the process, hoping that our experience helps someone else: We Have a Transcript! I'd love to hear what others have done along with outcomes that others have had with narrative-type transcripts.
  13. This is sort of a s/o of the question about nontraditional high school ... Okay, so the advice I get is that if my child has offbeat courses for history and literature and English, then it's best for me to just pull those into a standard "English 9" and "World History" credit, so that the admissions people see what they expect to see. Okay, I can understand that. We've been looking at some colleges that request more of homeschoolers - detailed course descriptions and syllabi. Would we also draw up those course descriptions and syllabi to match the classes that are on the transcript? (My kids physically attended co-op classes that were part history, part literature, part philosophy, part art history. Two such classes, taken together in the same year, would equal a history credit and an English credit, by pulling half the material out of each class and combining it.) Some colleges like to see creativity on the part of homeschoolers. Some do not. We could tailor transcripts and applications depending on what the college wants to see ... but then what about the Common Application? It seems that once we do the Common App, everything must be the same for everyone. What do nontraditional homeschoolers do about dates? The Common Application, and the people who want detailed course descriptions, also want to see dates of courses. Well ... what if you did some here, and some there?
  14. Has anyone here put ABRSM practical and theory coursework on their student's high school transcript? I'd love to know what you did. Any experiences with preparing for AP Music when using the ABRSM curriculum? ABRSM = Associated Boards of the Royal Schools of Music Tia
  15. We have a speech and debate club and my son has been apart of both for 2 years (they are 2 different classes and you can be in one and not the other). Each year you are in the club the expectation grows. So novice speakers are not expected to compete in as many tournaments, etc... For transcript purposes would you count it as Speech I and Speech II? What they learn each year is the same however each year they are encouraged to spread their wings and try harder categories. DS first year he did impromptu and platform, this year he is doing interp, apologetics, and persuasive.
  16. How do you keep them? Do you list ever grade? Keep records of just tests? I want to know exactly what I am doing so next year when dd is a 9th grader I will not have any issues (hopefully :001_huh:) Dd wants to go to school for Veterinary Medicine and knows what school she wants to go to (ofcourse we will have other choices but I want to give her the best advantage I can to getting accepted to the school of her choice, kwim?) So- veteran homeschool moms of high schoolers-- HELP :eek:
  17. My ds will be starting 8th grade this year and, being our last transition year before high school, I feel obligated to begin more formal grading (i.e. a letter grade for each subject every term and a final overall grade in each subject). Up to now I have corrected every assignment and had him correct any deficiencies as we went along. Only in math did he have a real idea of a grade - 90% correct was an "A", etc. The problem is that I want to have a way of evaluating him and holding him responsible for his effort level without getting sucked into a public school type grading scheme which would seem to be extremely labor intensive on my part. I don't want to have to come up with a rubric for each and every assignment. This is not something I want to be stressing over! What are grades for? To me they are a way to set standards and to show how the student has met those standards. Does anyone have a simpler way of assigning letter grades? I'm not brave enough to do the pass/fail on his HS transcript. Right now he wants to go to a top engineering university and grades have loomed darkly on my planning horizon. Thank you for your guidance. I learn so much from you every day!
  18. Thinking out loud, no more than that. Why do so many homeschoolers want to replicate "honors" and/or "AP" courses for their high school students? I don't believe it is wrong to do so ! I try to teaching rock-solid courses in all subjects. I don't feel any compulsion to label them "honors" or "AP". Some of my coursework probably has qualified as such, over the years, but I don't worry about it. High quality provided for my children is my aim. If respondents don't mind sharing honest introspection, is this trend followed because of competition for college admission, or because of a deeply-buried insecurity of how homeschooling coursework stacks up -- (in the eyes of the sometimes hostile non-homeschooling world) -- against that of "outside schools"? Similar possibility, perhaps, is it that homeschoolers are imitating outside schools, where AP classes have proliferated like healthy rabbits? Not a trace of anti-intellectualism among my family, as dh and my education proves. I'm not coming from that angle. I'm just interested and very curious.
  19. I posted these for new members on CharlotteHomeschooling.com and thought I'd share them here, too. http://www.degreeplanners.com/?Welcome_to_DegreePlanners:Homeschool_Students:Transcript_Resources
  20. I'm a little freaked out, it has hit me that my dd is in 8th grade this year and that means high school is right around the corner! I'm not sure what to do, I feel totally unprepared. Now dd has not expressed any interest in secondary education, and we are fine with that, however I'd still like to "do it right" because she has 7 brothers coming up after her and I'm guessing at least one of them is going to want to go to college. What do I need to be thinking about when we plan our year? What should a transcript look like? Is there a benefit to a portfolio over a transcript? I've heard I can use course work done in 8th grade towards high school credit, is this true? Does age matter when it comes to material covered? I've never given my kids grades, we've always worked on the mastery idea, how do I give them a GPA? Somebody point me in the direction I need to go please!! I feel like I'm about to walk off a ledge!
  21. I'm planning for the future, outlining many options, and I wondered if taking geography as a senior is frowned upon my college admin in any way. We plan to study Great Books in some capacity. Some of it depends on how interested he will be in spending two years in ancient studies. If we did Geo in 12th we'd probably pick up misc Great Books as our lit. I thought Geo (and adding cultural geo) would be a nice break from intense GBs. I just didn't want it to appear like he was slacking off in his senior year. A few options I've made are: 9th: US/Modern World History 10th: Ancient Greek 11th: Ancient Roman 12th: Middle Ages/Renaissance 9th: US/Modern World History 10th: Ancients 11th: Middle Ages/Renaissance 12th: World Geography & Cultures I chose US in 9th because I don't think he'll be ready for the reading pace for Ancients until 10th. I'm not concerned about the darkness of modern lit as we're adding some sci-fi to the mix.
  22. Ok I am feeling really nervous about these. Everything for dds college life and career goals depends on these (well, career goals goes back to college) How do you do them? Is there software that makes it easy? I am very panicked about doing these and not messing up. I am planning on doing 8th grade transcripts as a "trial" year so I do not mess up. Also, if a child is taking high school level classes in 8th can those be counted on the transcripts anywhere? Is there a book called high school transcripts for dummies?? :D :001_huh: Any and all calming advice would be greatly appreciated!
  23. That thread got me to thinking about GPA's because that is one of the questions it asks on the application for the STEM program. When do you start keeping a GPA for your dc? I have not done so yet and my oldest dd will be in 8th grade next year. I think I am going to start next year so I get the hang of it for high school. When do you start keeping a GPA for your dc? Or do you at all?
  24. I am wandering just how to write out a course description for the 3 separate subjects in an Veritas Press Omnibus course???? Has anyone written one course description for all 3 subjects? Has anyone written a seperate course description for Bible, History,& Literature? Any ideas would be great!:001_smile:
