Keeping Records of Grades
Homeschool Record Keeping - Scores and Grade Averages
This page was last updated on Monday, 28-Oct-2013 14:30:55 PDT
Keeping records of scores and grade averages is a part of required homeschooling record keeping for some. For those who need or want to keep records of scores and grade averages, I have added to donnayoung.org printable grade record forms.
If you have a spreadsheet program such as Excel, please be sure to also look at my XLS graders. The XLS graders do the calculations for you. Grades and Attendance. I designed grades and attendance especially for those homeschoolers, like myself, who have to keep track of grades and attendance.

The image below shows a close-up of the form. This is a suggestion of how to use the form. Lines 1-6 are for ONE subject. There are 10 rows of these groups of numbered lines. The subjects are written again on the second page of the form.
REFERENCING THE GRADES: As shown in the image below, the first subject is Math. Notice that the letter "m" has been written next to each number and numbers have been written across the top. These marks or keys are for referencing grades. Example... the red grades are in: m1-5 and sp1-5. The purpose of referencing grades is that (if) you need to make a note of the source of the grade.
This form is available in both Roman Keyed and Alpha Keyed
This form is meant for one single subject per school year per child. Form is broken into semesters and grades can be averaged every two weeks, each semester, and yearly. At the bottom of the form is a space for the grade scale.
This form has space for 6 notes/projects/other as well as tests and daily work. Add the grades in the days which the graded work was done. That means you will leave some of the cells empty.. which is fine.
Roman Keyed - The cells are keyed by week and day. The days are noted with Roman numerals. Example.. the first Monday is I1, the second Monday is I2.
Roman Keyed Planners
Alexia - 4-Page Quarterly Planner - | PDF | DOC | RTF | ODT | (doc, rtf, & odt formats require a font - see | Alexia | for more details)
Garamond - 4-Page Quarterly Planner pdf | doc | rtf
Garamond - 2-Page Semester Planner -- 5 columns -- pdf | doc | rtf
To coordinate with a weekly planner, you will have to write in the key.
Alpha Keyed means the column headers contain letters and the row headers contain numbers. A letter and a number can be paired to "map" a block in the planner. For instance, A1 is the first block in the planner. A2 is the first block in the second row. E2 is the last block in the second row. Related: Homeschool Portfolio Lesson Planner
