  3. I am trying to help another hs mom with the transcript and her daughter has a D from French 101 at the local CC. Since this is just an elective, is it possible just to omit it from the transcript? Also, it is possible they will hire a private tutor for French for the rest of this year. Would it be "legal" to include that course on her transcript? Along the same lines, if she withdraws from a CC course, does that have to be included on the transcript? THANKS in advance! Pamela
  4. I am working on a transcript for my daughter with things arranged by subject. I am wondering if you put in courses that are in process or just ones that have a final grade. If you leave out courses in process, do you put them on a separate page? Or do you input them elsewhere in the application?
  5. Just starting to lay out our high school plan and wondering if there are current thoughts or ideas on the online or software packages available. Is Edu-Track still a useful program? What about Donna Young and her planners/programs? are they still relevant and applicable? any new programs or products that folks have tried and liked? Thanks in Advance!! Pam
  6. I'm in the very beginning stages of deciding whether to continue homeschooling my DD12 for high school (her older sisters went to PS after homeschooling through middle school). If I do keep her home for HS, it is very likely that I will use a combination of mom-taught, at home courses; various online providers (WHA, WTMA, & PAH); and possibly some in-person, local classes. Will I submit transcripts from each of these providers? If so, colleges will likely receive 5+ transcripts for this one student. That seems complicated and confusing. But, if they are teaching the class and assigning the grade, doesn't it make sense the transcript would come from the provider directly? Or am I still the "teacher" and am simply sub-contracting part of that job to various providers? If the latter is the case, can I modify the grade in order to achieve consistency? If one provider considers a 91% an A-, but another calls it an A, what do you do? Change things for the sake of consistency or just list as reported by the provider. Forgive me if this has been asked and answered. I did a search and although I found many, many threads about transcripts, I didn't see the answer to this specific question. Thanks in advance!
  7. Our family uses homiletics as a way to study the Bible every morning. I believe that this has given my kids invaluable thinking skills as well as helped them learn how to make succinct summaries of long passages. I would like to include this on their high school transcripts, but I'm not sure how to report it. Is there a broad category that it could fall under? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks.
  8. Has anyone had a college require an applicant to provide dates for spine textbooks in course descriptions? Thoughts/ideas/information on "how old is too old" for listing a science textbook?
  9. I've read the older threads about this, but I'm wondering if anyone has found something new or just loves what they use to make a transcript. I don't need a program that tracks all their assignments, just a form to fill out and look professional. My dd is a freshman and I want to decide what to use by the end of the year so I don't get behind. So, what's the latest and greatest and why do you like it? If you have a great Word document, feel free to share! :)
  10. For High School transcripts, do you usually put all semester grades, or just the final grade for each class? I'm just wondering, because I JUST started recording grades for the year (Son is suffering from Post Concussion Syndrome, grades in the beginning of the year mean nothing, since he can't remember anything, and was completely impaired). If you need to record in semesters, how would I mark the first semester. He did do work, but it wasn't representative of him in the least, I mean, honestly, he couldn't even pick up a pencil and write. It was mostly just discussion and reading. Nothing more. We just started Geometry and Science a little before Thanksgiving. Thanks!
  11. Some homeschooler in these forums must have experience applying to Oberlin's conservatory and/or arts and sciences college. Like to share any general advice and experience? Our questions so far: 1. How did the music theory exam compare to ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) Level 7 and/or the AP Music Theory exam? 2. How far down into the weeds did you go with course descriptions? Were you asked for more at any point? 3. Was a lab report sufficient evidence of "science laboratory experiences?" 4. If you did the preliminary financial paperwork, was that process helpful in contemplating early decision? Because Oberlin asks for "a description of each course of study" with dates, I'm stuffing key details into the notes section on the transcript. That makes this version somewhat bloated compared to the prettier, streamlined one. But I just can't see uploading zillions of pages, and can't imagine they'd want to wade through that level of detail. * * * * * "Homeschooled applicants to the Conservatory should submit an academic portfolio, with a detailed syllabus that lists the subjects studied each year, the dates each subject was studied, a description of each course of study, major texts used or literature read, and evidence of science laboratory experiences. In addition, the test scores from either SAT I, or the ACT with writing exam are required." http://new.oberlin.edu/conservatory/admissions/apply/academic-and-testing-requirements.dot "A detailed syllabus that lists the subjects studied each year, the dates each subject was studied, a description of each course of study, major texts used or literature read, and evidence of science laboratory experiences. The Academic Portfolio is to be uploaded in PDF format to Oberlin’s Common App Writing Supplement. . . . Provide a copy of a recently written academic paper. Papers do not need to be lengthy, but should be a typical example of your written work. Graded copies are preferred. A recent scientific laboratory report is welcome as an example of an academic paper. The Academic Paper is to be uploaded in PDF format to Oberlin’s Common App Writing Supplement." http://new.oberlin.edu/arts-and-sciences/admissions/first-year-applicant/homeschooled.dot
  12. Okay, so my first quarterly is approaching quickly. I have a few questions. ( I did get a few answers in a different thread but that was buried) First I'm not huge on grades but have been sort of keeping them, however the transcript I am using provides for grades for 1st and 2nd semester, so I am wondering should I only report actual grades at 2nd quarterly and last? or each one? or if you give just a satisfactory evaluation, then how do report grades on transcripts? How would you show credits that were received in 8th grade PS on a transcript that only shows 9-12 grades ?? DD has her French credit and also one for her elective for Rise of Nationalism class both from 8th grade in PS. I am trying to do this in the simplest form and found a nice template but there is not room to add these in. Also do you give grades for PE ? and show this on the transcripts? I am sure I will have more questions but for now.. Thank you!
  13. It's my understanding that liberal arts colleges are okay with receiving transcripts that don't have a grade for every course, but I'm wondering if that is okay with large state universities. Is the answer different for core course vs electives?
  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. Hello all, I'm finally at that point in the year when I start to panic about record keeping and getting my course descriptions, transcripts, etc. up to date and in place. As a result I've been reading about homeschool record keeping and have a question for the hive...how do you handle book lists? Several places I've read that high school students should keep a list of all books read, both for class and for fun. So how does one go about this in terms of ultimately including it with a college application. Would they be listed in their own document? Are they part of a course description? How do you handle books where you are reading a selection from the book and not the whole book? How do you handle avid readers of a periodical-not the hollywood gossip magazines but a more scholarly journal? I'm feeling a bit lost on how I would use this information but I know we need to stay on top of it (if it is necessary) because creating it at the end of 3 or 4 years would be insane and painful. Thanks!
  16. I would really appreciate some guidance from the hive mind on this one please. I'll try not to make it confusing. DS is 9 yo and in 3rd grade. We have been struggling with what was believed to be an attention problem in class since kindergarten. We've tried behavioral rewards, etc with no success. This year, he is getting worse. We investigated Auditory Processing Disorder this fall on the suggestion of the vice principal and a new Sunday school teacher. Eureka! We finally figured it out! I was present for the 3 hour audiologist eval, and it was crystal clear. The poor kid can't understand approx. 40% of what he hears in a room with background noise! This explains why he does so well on his schoolwork for me in our quiet house, and so poorly in his typically noisy classroom. He can't understand what his teacher is saying. The school is currently doing his level 4 RTI to get him qualified as learning disabled so he can receive auditory assistance in the classroom (FM system) etc. One problem: our school system (Georgia) does not recognize APD as a learning disability. Our school psychologist, who is very well intentioned, has suggested finagling a diagnosis of "mild autism" to get him the help he needs in school. He's failing 3rd grade, and yet his standardized scores show 6th grade intelligence. He may qualify for the gifted program and the learning disabled program simultaneously. The psychologist has suggested that "mild autism" may be to blame for our son's lack of social skills in school. We think it's because he can't hear his peers talking to him, because he's perfectly conversational and friendly in one on one playdates in our quiet home. If you put him on a loud playground, gym class, or in the lunchroom, it's like the "cone of silence" drops because he seems overwhelmed by all the noise, sometimes to the point of covering his ears. We are tempted to go along with the "mild autism" diagnosis to get him the help he needs from the school. Yay, bureaucracy! We are concerned, though, about possible detrimental effects on him later. Will FERPA, the law governing privacy in educational records protect him? He's our oldest, so we have no clue. He's in third grade. Will his high school and/or college even know of the diagnosis by the school (not a medical doctor) if we don't disclose it? Does anyone out there with more experience see problems in the future we may not have anticipated? Thanks, GA Mom
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. My rising 9th grader just completed Apologia Physical Science, and will begin Apologia Biology in 9th grade. We are in CA, and a good friend just told me that she's heard that physical science taken in 8th grade will not count toward high school graduation requirements, even if we are using a high school text. This is what she was told by a friend of ours who is working through a public charter school. But I don't know how true that is...the charter that our friend is using is notorious for giving out totally-untrue information (even if they don't do so on purpose) so I'm taking it with a grain of salt. Looking online, I'm seeing a lot of public schools in CA that do physical science in 8th grade. So does physical science completed in 8th grade count toward the high school requirement? We're homeschooling independently - can physical science that was completed in 8th grade go in my son's high school transcript, and if so, how do I go about doing that (he's my first high schooler and I'm really green). We are still planning on 3 more years of science, but I don't want to make my son repeat what he's already done. The graduation/UC/CSU requirements are exactly the same today as they were 25 years ago when I started 9th grade - I took Algebra 1 in 8th grade, and then did the honors physical science/honors bio/honors chem/AP bio sequence for high school. My Algebra 1 credit transferred seamlessly from my private jr. high to my public high school, but I have no clue what happens with science credits. Those of you in who follow the Apologia sequence and live in CA - how does that work on your kids' transcripts?
  20. Nan and I are wondering what b & m schools are providing? If you have any who have graduated from a b & m high school in the US, Europe, or Asia (or you still have your own records?-)), could you describe what is sent in the sealed envelope to requesting schools or employers? In this post on Nan's thread, I desribe the transcript and Profile, and this post on Nan's thread, I described the diploma given by a private school here...but it is quite unlike what is given by the public schools here. (I have to get that from another son in the near future).... So I'm wondering about the range of 'possible'.... How often is a School Profile included? I'm sure it isn't in my ds2's but then it's a local school that everyone knows...Would they send one to schools/employers abroad? And if a School Profile is included - what is in that document? Thanks, Joan
  21. Would it be possible to have a sticky where everyone could add their advice and possibly samples on how to write school profiles, arrange transcripts, and create course descriptions? Sort of a "everything but the kitchen sink" for paperwork for college applications. There have been several good threads about the process, but I am having trouble keeping track of what I need and sometimes I don't know I will need something until later when my understanding of the process is more developed. I feel as though if I start the course descriptions and reading lists now, the senior crunch will be easier. If it is not possible to have a sticky like the chemistry thread, could we please at least link threads on the above topics? Thanks so much!
  22. Starting to plan for keeping records, managing transcripts, etc. Technically, my dd will be 8th grade age next year. We have no plans to graduate her early. She is enrolled as a 9th grade student in a uni-model school. Would being accelerated a grade equal an honors level course? So, if she takes high school English I in 8th grade, would I call that honors? How do you calculate honors in a gpa? I ask because many accelerated classes will transition to AP in a few years. If she took algebra 1 in 7th grade, can I call that honors algebra 1? Seems like honors to me! Thanks for insight!
  23. So I've been mostly awol on the board since 2010, but now I've come crawling back asking for mercy and seriously in need of some hive wisdom. :crying: Summary: oldest ds was a dream student. He worked independently. Life was a joy. He graduates from college in June. 2nd ds was a slug. I enrolled him with Seton so we'd both be accountable. I dragged/pushed/pulled him to graduation. Now he's in college. Yippee--not my problem! 3rd dd--very add/disorganized (umm, like me?). Also in Seton for the last 3 yrs. Many tears shed by us both. 4th ds--rising 8th grader. High school looming large. I'm freaking out. youngers all over the place creating distractions and inhibiting learning I cannot do Seton any more. Can't. Do. It. I don't even know how we'll make it to the end of this year with one student. The sad thing is, I began Seton to help me be accountable, and to help keep the kids accountable. But I feel like I am now paralyzed. Like, "Oh no, how will I come up with courses and grades for a transcript on my own?" Even though I've done this before, it's all very freshly scary to me. How do you all do it? Do you grade everything? Do you make up all your own courses? Do you make transcripts or portfolios? Do you have successful college kids to prove it? :tongue_smilie: I'm an easily overwhelmed person. {should consider changing my screen name to "ovrwlmd"} and so maybe I just need you all to talk me down and say it's ok and that many people have successfully homeschooled their children to college without an umbrella school to hold them by the hand. Thank you in advance for hard batman smacks. I need some!
  24. Could people help me figure out what options there are that would count as an English credit for applying to a reputable college? If dd does only 3 years of high school, one of those years will have to have two credits of English, to get the necessary 4 credits of English... I know the obvious ones: English I (or 9) - mixture of grammar, vocab, writing, speech, literature English II (or 10)- same English III (or 11) - same - maybe minus the grammar - focus would be more on writing and lit analyis English IV (or 12) - idem.... AP English Language AP English Literature It seems like I've seen people give a credit for British Literature? or American Literature? Then if you do a special course on composition - you could have a credit for, say, Creative Writing.... I did a search of 'English Course Titles' but didn't find anything concise..... If dd is doing an AP English - that will already have the typical elements of vocab, speech, writing and lit....So what else could be done for English for another credit that year? Anyone have ideas? Thanks, Joan
  25. Or do you simply make them yourself? I am feeling really lost about making these- any advice? The whole high school thing has me nervous! :001_unsure:
