Data# means any one or more of these worksheets –Data1, Data2, Data3, and Data4
After filling in the Data worksheet, Data1, Data2, Data3, and Data4 worksheets might need to be filled.
When you first look at a Data# worksheet, it might look a little busy, but the colors that I’ve used have a purpose.
- Orange Cells – the action takes place at the orange cells. Orange is also used on Data2 as a border color.
- Black, white, or Gray cells – do nothing unless I say it is okay.
Fill in Data# if …
You will know if a Data# worksheet should be filled in if a student’s name and grade appears at the top of the worksheet.
- If the name or the grade is wrong, go to the Data worksheet to correct it.
- If there is no name at the top of the Data# worksheet, then don’t fill it in.
What Data# Needs
Below is a list of information that may be entered or selected at the Data# worksheet.
- Yes or No at – Will this student use Credits? – If your child earns as little as .5 credit, please answer yes. No means the child is absolutely not earning credits in any classes.
- Yes or No at – Will you need to count minutes spent in class?
- Standardized Test Information – This is NOT part of set up, you may skip this.
- The student’s school grade – Enter K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th … Do not spell the numbers please.
- Grading Terms – How many grading terms for this school year? – Select the number of grading terms that you need for the student. The number is selected from a drop-down list and can be numbers 2-6.
- Which grading term starts the 2nd semester? – This drop down list is directly under the grading terms number. I have included a table on the Data# worksheet to help you choose which grading term could start at the second semester. The choices are 2-4.
- (Applies only to V Planner V4) – Class Locations or Location List – if your student takes a few co-op classes or classes outside of the home and you would like that to be noted on the transcript, then fill in the cells at Locations List. Also choose a character number (char number) for the key. The help page for the location list is at – About the Location List
- CLASSES – enter class names, then if using, credits, and if using, select a class location.
- (Applies to High School V Planner only) If using, select a category for each class. If the categories are wrong, do not set this up yet, go to the Lists worksheet NOW (please) and enter the correct Course Categories.
