  1. Hello! We homeschooled up until last year when all of my kids went to a private school. They are all back home again this year, and my oldest is a senior. College transcript info: My senior is settled on Boyce College (we are a NAMB family and will get a big scholarship). I have tried emailing the college several times asking for specific admissions requirements for homeschoolers, and they have not given me anything. Does anyone have helpful info on this? Is this an unusual question? I have basic homeschool transcript info. I was just hoping to meet their specific requirements as my son would like to graduate early and begin working. I don't want to needlessly fill his time with electives. Gap year: My son hopes to spend a gap year with missionary friends of ours in Papua. This means we won't be applying to college this fall, which feels strange. He is still taking the SAT though. How do gap year students handle the SAT? The school wants to receive scores directly from the test but we are not applying this year so I'm not sure how to handle that. Thank you!!
  2. I am trying to help a parent complete a transcript for her ds. He attended a private high school here in VA, but did not pass English 11 or 12. He was not allowed to return. I tutored him in both those subjects, he passed them, and he now needs a transcript to continue at the community college. I have listed two options below but would really like your input or other ideas. 1) Present a FULL transcript with the courses and grades from the private school and my two courses. The private school courses would be identified and then it would be noted that the official transcript is requested from that school. ETA: I lean towards this option so that a cumulative gpa can be reported with the additional 2 courses. 2) Present the LIMITED transcript with my two courses only. Note that the remainder is requested from the private school. Thanks in advance for your input! Pamela F.
  3. I made a beautiful transcript for my daughter using a spreadsheet. Now, I want to upload it onto the common app, but it will not upload any of the formats I can save it into. It wants things like Word! Is there any technical way around this or do I need to send my transcript by snail mail.
  4. Help! I am combining a bunch of free resources to help my daughter with her study skills, SAT prep, and career exploration. I would like to put this on her high school transcript as a semester course. I was trying to come up with a course title. She will be using Khan academy's SAT preparation course, 14 study skills videos and worksheets from www.ibcc.edu/LAR/studyskills.cfm, and Career Explorations four week course from Letshomeschoolhighschool.com. I think this will be a semester course (I am going to have her track her time spent on the materials). Any title ideas? Would a course like this be acceptable on a high school transcript? Thanks!! Jenny
  5. Could not upload ODS format so I have to upload attachment as a zip/compressed file. You would need to right click after download and expand/unzip. Can be edited in both Google Sheet online or Excel Online. First tab was converted from a WTM transcript document someone shared a long time ago. Second tab is for those of us in California who are checking off A-G requirements Transcript.zip Transcript.zip
  6. If your student self studied MIT OCW Scholar courses for high school, 1. how did you transcript this if she or he finished the course in one semester but took about 120 hours? Did you give it 1 high school credit or 0.5? 2. did you use course description info from the MIT OCW site, provide a link etc? E.g. course that kiddo is using does not use a textbook, should I just state that in course descriptions? Thank you!
  7. Hello all: I would appreciate your input on this dilemma. I am home schooling my high school son. He is currently in 9th grade. He would like to attend Arizona State University (ASU). When I reviewed their admission requirements it says that any science lab courses completed in high school must be "live labs". No virtual labs on computer are accepted. ASU is not clear about accepting science labs done in the home environment. The labs we do are "live", meaning we use real equipment (i.e. microscope, slides, dissection equipment, etc.) in our home school science courses. My concern is that they will not accept these labs. I have talked with different advisors at ASU and received different answers. And there will be no guarantee that what they tell us today will be what they judge his transcript by in 3 years when he applies to college. This has been my plan. What do you all suggest? 9th grade: His first semester of Biology was completed at a local public high school. The second semester we decided to home school him. We continued with Biology by completing Apologia Biology. 10th grade: We plan on doing Apologia Chemistry 12th grade: We plan on having him take Physics at a local community college for dual credit for the 1st semester. The second semester we plan on having him take Anatomy and Physiology at the local community college for dual credit. Have any of you encountered difficulty getting a college to accept home school high school labs? What did you do? All your advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Denny
  8. My DS (in OH) has been studying several subjects this year with the intent of taking the AP exams for the subjects in May. We didn't get a syllabus approved by the College Board, but have followed the syllabus of several of the courses that are given as examples on the College Board web site. In researching AP related info on the Forums the consensus seems to be no approved syllabus = no AP designation. However in looking at the Ohio Department of Education documents on the ODE website I found repeated reference to allowing designation of AP on a transcript if the AP exam was taken and the student received a score 3,4, or 5. These documents were in reference to a credit flexibility option (testing out). Has anyone had experience with this - the College Board allowing AP designation based on the exam scores? Thanks in advance for any insight you might have on this. References "The College Board will allow the AP subject area to be listed on the transcript if a student in Ohio meets either of two conditions: a) takes an authorized AP course; b) scores 3 or better on the associated AP Exam. from document https://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/School-Choice/Credit-Flexibility-Plan/Credit-Flexibility-Guidance-Documents/Advanced-Placement-Exams.pdf.aspx "We just received some guidance yesterday from the College Board on that point. If you use the AP test as a test-out instrument, it must be given in May when all the other AP tests are given. If students score a three or higher on that test, then they’re eligible to receive that AP credit." http://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/School-Choice/Credit-Flexibility-Plan/Credit-Flexibility-Web-Conference-Series/Audio-Transcript_08_17_10.pdf.aspx
  9. So, I am contemplating my oldest son's HS plan and even though I know things might change I am trying to get a good solid plan underway. I am debating as to let him go ahead and take college classes or continue on with classes I can come up with on my own and outsourcing subjects through other online providers like AP classes etc. Love to see those who have gone before me and what you all have done. He is several grades ahead in most all subjects, and has taken most HS classes so am looking for things to fill in his requirements for graduation. Also, trying to determine credits for college courses and HS credit on transcript. Read the past forums leaving my head swirling! I know that for instance HS you should have 4 science, math, history, and english but if you take some at the college can one college class replace one year of English say in HS? I know overwhelming questions...hope this makes sense. Thanks for the advice!
  10. I remember this being asked late last year but I can find the thread. I'm preparing a transcript for DD for a summer program which is good practice for me. DD has taken classes from four different online sources and at CC. What is the best way to show this without excess use of asterisks or superscripts? If anyone has has a child's transcript with the same situation as my DD, would you be willing to share a scrubbed version? DD's transcript will be listed by subject, not by year. Thank you!
  11. Just curious about how others put a CLEP credit on a transcript if your student hasn't taken an offical class. DD is doing a self-study. Would you convert the score to a grade or just list it as and extra accomplishment? Thanks!
  12. My daughter worked with tutors and self-studied for AP Lit and APUSH, and got 4s on the exams. I know that lots of people translate AP self-studies to a grade where 5=A, 4=B, etc. When you look at the stats, 7% of the Lit scores are 5s, and 10% 5s for APUSH. I'm sure that there are plenty of kids in bricks-and-mortar schools who got A's in their course but a 4 on the test. Is there a non-sleazy rationale for giving a higher grade than B? And the tutor offered (previously, before we knew the scores) to write evaluations and give her grades. I don't want to anything that would raise questions about her transcript, but it is junior year and Bs aren't ideal.
  13. I sent in DS’s final transcript on May 30th. Called Admissions on the 6th to make sure they rec’d it since it was still marked as not done. The woman I spoke to noted that it was rec’d but stated that it takes about 10 business days for them to process the transcript into the system. She said I just needed to give it more time but that it was there and it looked fine. Called Admissions on the 13th since the task was still marked as not done. I was advised that the task would change to done over the weekend. The transcript was there and it looked fine. Called today, the 17th, since the task is still not complete. I got ‘Kristi’ who informed me that while the transcript was there, and even though it had grades through the end of 12th grade it lacked the words, FINAL TRANSCRIPT, and a specific graduation date. Surprised by this I was then told, “Well, I am telling you this now.†Kristi was not in a good mood or maybe she just does not care for homeschoolers not knowing all these little rules. The transcript form was the same one I used for older DS for U of DE and they accepted it. I have a package for admissions; a copy of DS’s diploma and a new transcript with large letters at the top, FINAL TRANSCRIPT---GRADUATION DATE: May 30, 2014. UGH.... almost finished. C
  14. my life would be so much easier now (that I'm trying to do transcripts). What I wish I would have done is: At the beginning of each school year.... Buy Large manila envelopes for each subject (large enough to put spiral notebooks in). Type up a paper listing all the items that could be in that envelope and tape it to the front of the envelope - ie: Photocopy of: Title page for each textbook being used, with the page after which has ISBN, copyright, etc. Table of contents for each textbook used Also Course description downloaded from internet sites for online courses (instead of waiting til 3 years later) (These can change over time too) Tests Sample of work External grade copy (eg for online courses, etc), (esp remembering to get this from dc periodically for online work) Spaces to list all other books used Spaces for other resources Letters of recommendation from the course Papers or presentations given Copy of hours done for course Grade page Copy of lesson plans at the end of the year. Check off items as they are added - like the TC's etc. As new books get used, just add them to the list. As it is now, I'm trying to dig up old textbooks (thankfully I haven't sold them yet) from here and there. I had put tests and sports info in his portfolio. Other lesson planners were in the storeroom. It would have all been so much easier than to wait for a couple of years to amass this stuff. I just kept putting it off. In 9th grade I'd had the idea of doing a portfolio, and then keeping other stuff in other places. In reality now - one notebook portfolio is not nearly enough space, having everything spread out is a nightmare later on, and keeping the coursework as individual units instead of in year portfolios, seems more flexible. I did have the envelope idea last spring, but I didn't have the idea to start the year with them, nor the idea of putting a sheet on the front to check off as I go.... For whomever it can help, I just had to share, Joan (Since we may move back to PA where they look at what you do in Jr. Hi, I'm going to start now for my dd in 7th) (ETA from later post) Some other items to add to the list (some are ideas from a document I got from Lori D. - thank you Lori). For the courses - SAT II/AP/CLEP scores for a subject (these are photocopies of the real document which I keep in a special binder for safety and easy access for the few pages of external really official records I have) Certificates of achievements, honors, awards (copies of ones in binder) Lab reports (or sample of) and photo of a lab experiment being done.(some colleges have asked for this - but not all) Photos of exceptional pieces of artwork Brochures (within reason, for very special events) from field trips, concerts, educational programs or activities attended (where it was not the whole course, just additional) For CAS (Creativity, Action, Service - taken from IB presentation) and work - Theater/performing arts - printed program from play, recital, etc., Service/volunteer work - photos and documentation (see other threads) Sports team - record of wins/losses For the work experience envelope - besides the usual documentation and resume of work experience - photos Other extracurricular activities - certificates of participation
  15. Ds is taking Thinkwell Chemistry this year - the regular college level class, not the AP class, since he is not taking the AP exam and also because, looking at the topics covered, the regular course covers more than the AP course. I know that without taking the AP exam score he won't be able to get AP credit at college, but I am wondering what to call the course on his transcript. Can I still call it AP Chemistry, since it covers the same topics, or should I call it Honors Chemistry or something else? The table from the Thinkwell FAQ page (http://www.thinkwellhomeschool.com/how-it-works) seems to indicate that AP high school chemistry is equivalent to the regular (college level) Thinkwell chemistry course. Thank you for helping me with my confusion!
  16. Hi, I was wondering how many credits to put on my daughter's high school transcript for the dual credit classes she's taking? For example, if she takes College Algebra for 3.0 credits (college credits) do I put 3.0 high school credits on her transcript or do I count that as one high school math credit? I will be attaching a transcript from the college that shows how many college credits she's actually accrued, but I wasn't sure how to note it on the transcript. Thanks for your help! BLessings, Julie
  17. My son is taking 3 self study AP courses this year. I know that I cannot list the courses on his transcript as "AP" because that is a trademark of the College Board. My question,then, is how do I indicate those courses on his transcript? Also how is credit determined for AP classes? For example, AP micro-economics and AP macro-economics....are they worth 1 credit each? Any help would be appreciated.
  18. ETA - I should have said "finally finished". Most people are giving credits when they are finished - lol. I'm working on the transcript and want to do two types, the "by the year" and the "by the subject" formats. (I'm thinking that "by the year" is what they are used to seeing over here). But when I do the "by the year" style, I have a 1/4 American History in 9th, 1/2 American History in 10th, and a final 1/4 American History in 11th. (This mess happened since I now want to get a diploma through a US umbrella school and so have had to separate out of our history studies, the part that is actually "American" and give a separate credit for the other part - which is then just as messy - for "World" history).There is the same problem for Fine Arts - except it is 1/3 FA 9th, 1/3 FA in 10th and 1/3 FA in 11th. I am wondering if it immoral to just give the final credit when it is actually finished - both being in 11th grade? (Except then I note that he will be getting 2 credits of history in 11th grade) Then there is a slightly similar problem for German II except it is the reverse. It was 95% finished at the end of 10th at the end of June, and he finished it up at the end of the summer, but in actuality, that is already counting as 11th for our school years. On the paper from OSU, the only date they give is when the letter is written with the grades. I had wanted to put it in 10th since most of the work was done then. He did German I entirely in 10th. And is now doing German III in 11th - and that should be entirely finished in this school year. He may even end up starting IV....This is messy when they can work at their own pace. So it is not like I can really apply the same rule to all situations. I do have to say that my son's international school diploma where there was this mixture of 1/2 or less credits all over the place because of the way they do the mixed science and social studies looks like a real mess (he then just did a regular US diploma). Thanks for input! Joan
  19. I am going into my second year of teaching high school writing..last year, I only had one senior and this year I have five. Next year, I will most likely have 10! The trend for homeschooling high school has definitely increased in our area. As part of their resource folder I am including samples of transcripts used by other homeschooling families. I am using 2 from HSLDA and one from a yahoo group I belong to (5 pages long) just to give examples of short/long...while the ones on HSLDA were fine, I did not see any that included test scores or accomplishments. I thought I had seen one where the family did include all these topics on one page. I've read through the posts (through searching) and found that some schools have their own specific transcript they want filled out or will tell you the information they require...could any of you share your files (marking out the child's name or I can black that out) and share any comments you received about your transcripts? I think this would be very helpful for my students and help motivate them to prepare for the next year. Thanks!
  20. I was reading Transcripts Made Easy by Janice Campbell. On p53 it talks about GPA and cumulative GPA. According to this the GPA is calculated by adding the total number of Grade Points and dividing by the total number of classes taken. The seem to use this for individual semesters. And the Cumulative GPA is calculated by adding the total number of Grade Points for the whole transcript and dividing by the total number of Units or credits earned. This seems weird to me. Why would you do the GPA like this (ie dividing by the number of classes and not taking into account the credits earned)? The Cum GPA makes sense but I don't understand why I would use this GPA calculation?? Also, the examples on pages 80 and 81 show a 1/2 credit class with a grade of A getting 4 GPA points. Then the next semester shows the other 1/2 credit of that class with a grade of A getting 4 GPA points ??? so the whole class gets 1 credit and 8 GPA points ... (that's what's on pages 80 and 81). hmm, really? I would have given 4 points for getting an A in the 1 credit class. :confused:
  21. I am getting ready to start 9th grade with my first-ever high-schooler, and while I have a solid idea of how to put together transcripts, I really don't know if I should use a program for my record-keeping and transcript-making, or if I should just use Excel. This will be my 10th year of homeschooling and I've never yet used a formal program for my record-keeping (I've kept detailed records, but Excel has been more than sufficient for my needs), but I want to buy/use whatever I need to produce transcripts that will look well-done. What do you all use, and why? Whatever I use needs to be compatible with a Mac, if that makes any difference. I have been very tempted to purchase Lee Binz's program, but I don't know enough about it to know if it's truly useful (though I really like Lee Binz). Thank you for any input.
  22. Hi everyone So, I am wondering how to award music credits on the transcript. DS only needs 2 Performing and Fine Arts credits for the colleges he is interested in. For some subjects, I count hours, and for others, I count it as a credit if he finishes a course (textbook or a course designed by me). I award 1 credit for 180 hours of work if I am counting hours. I have been counting hours for music. Here is the problem. If I count hours for music, he will have 8-10 credits of music if he keeps on at this rate. He already has over 400 hours spent on music (practicing, performing, composing, theory, etc.) this school year. I think it will look silly on his transcript if I put in two whole credits of music on the transcript per year. Will it? Shall I leave it out? On the other hand, if he wants to apply to music school, should I leave it in? Would music schools like it? It seems wrong to leave it out, but it seems silly to put it in. Any advice is very appreciated!
  23. I have been lurking for a while trying to get a handle on homeschooling highschool next year. I have been able to find transcript examples online but am unable to find one for a longer one which includes a description of the class and the books used. I would greatly appreciate it if you would point me to one. Sarah
  24. So, as I am putting together a preliminary transcript for ds16's college visit tomorrow, I am realizing that his sophomore year is rather light. I guess I was so busy getting his brother squared away for college that I neglected to make sure I had everything covered. He really only has a half credit for English - I am rectifying that with more writing this year and this coming summer. Also, his Chemistry class from freshman year spilled over into sophomore year and he didn't finish his Physics class last year in time for the AP (B) exam so he is finishing it up this year. So, do I fudge and put it in for his sophomore year or do I put it in with his junior year (which will have two college science classes this year.) Or, do I make a subject transcript? If I do that, how well-received are subject transcripts? Anyone have experience with acceptances with subject transcripts?
  25. Do you report outside grades for work making up only a portion of a credit receiving a mom-assigned grade? For example, suppose student does a year of English including home-grown study of lit, speech and writing plus three outside writing classes (each about 8 weeks long, different providers). Each of the outside classes reports a grade. Mom takes the outside grades into account in generating the mom-assigned grade for the year. However, is it advisable also to report, somewhere on the transcript, the outside grades themselves? I am thinking it could be useful for demonstrating that student has been assessed independently, even if for only part of a credit--but maybe not? If you have done this, can you recommend a format for doing so? Thank you all for sharing your wisdom on this forum.
