What to print and save from HS online classes

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am trying to get an idea of how much work everyone prints and saves from High school online classes. We have been doing state portfolio reviews twice a year so I have Grade sheets, one or two of the best  assignments or essays and any final exams printed and saved for the portfolio usually. Do we need more for college? I will have the transcript and course descriptions but could we get asked for actual work samples and if so, would the above be enough? There is so much to print in the online classes and they are not easily formatted for printing so I just want to avoid unnecessary printing. Thank you for sharing your experience. Warmest regards.

That’s fine. The only samples we were asked for was one application that required two graded papers (English and one other) and a couple of honors programs who wanted a writing sample—but it could be from any class. I’ve never heard of a school that required work from high school classes beyond that except Arizona State who likes to see lab reports(I think it’s ASU.)

I would definitely save the syllabus, as well as any graded tests and writing assignments.  As an instructor, I am often contacted by students who want a copy of the syllabus from a class they attended years ago and didn't save, so the syllabus seems to be the thing most colleges want.

I used to save far more. Now, I just print the grading sheet. I also try to save graded essays. If it was a science class, I'd try to save graded labs. Sometimes there is a syllabus, sometimes there isn't. If there is, I'd save it. Likewise, if the provider sends out an end-of-course grade sheet with comments about my kid, I save that. (Theoretically, I could use those comments in my counselor letter.) Otherwise, I mostly don't save as much as I used to.

Colleges asked for none of it. Like another poster indicated, there are a few which want a graded essay, but my DD#1 didn't apply to any of those.

I print and save any grades and any descriptions of classes and teacher info (for my course descriptions).  That’s it.  My dd does have papers she’s written on her computer, but I don’t print graded versions.
