Suggestions for keeping grade book HS level
This is only our second year homeschooling. My daughter is now in 9th grade. Last year we started halfway through the year and I was more laidback about score keeping but I kept good notes and record of everything she did on daily basis.
Now that she is HS level I want to be sure I am doing everything correctly with letter grades and credits and making transcripts. Im sure its probably easier than I am thinking but I feel bit lost and overwhelmed on how to grade and what to grade
Last year she used 3 different online programs(time4learning was one of them). This year we are still deciding how we want to set up her courses, a little of trial and error until we find a fit.
I would really love some suggestions and examples or some tips from other parents on how you choose to grade and what you choose to grade also how you choose to record keep.
Thank you all in advance

Re: Suggestions for keeping grade book HS level
I've used this simple high school time log to keep track of everything my kids have done during high school. The article it's attached to explains how it's used.
That's from the Let's Homeschool High School site. There are loads of resources on there, such as printable diploma and transcript templates.
There are loads of ways to calculate grades. My focus, when preparing a transcript for my kids' colleges, was to make sure the grades I awarded them were in line with what I expected their entrance exam tests to demonstrate.
