Hello, Lee-I have been working for weeks now preparing detailed course descriptions (like yours in your publications on the subject). I take my son to Grove City College next week for an interview.I was wondering about a course that you really only have a pass/fail grade for. I noticed you had one like that (Driver's Ed) and still gave your son a grade.
My son attended Worldview Academy and did a lot of worldview/apologetics elsewhere, too, that I am combining into a course. Unfortunately I have no "analysis" grades for this course (no papers, reports, tests, etc.) other than a test he took at Worldview, which was extremely challenging and which he didn't get a great score on! He did well enough to still get 2 credits from Oklahoma Wesleyan University as a "Pass" for attending Worldview, however. I doubt Grove City will accept those 2 credits, but I thought I'd put the exam under Analysis as a "Pass" (and the fact that he received those 2 credits) along with Reading: 100% and Participation-Attendance and Discussion: 100% as the other 2 categories on the course description and give him an "A" for a 1/2 credit class. I just don't see him writing a paper anytime soon that I could count.
Also, do you think it's all right to organize the course descriptions in a binder by subject? (rather than by grade taken?) Please pray that the interviewer will accept the binder and allow us to leave it there to be referred to after Evan applies to the school. I think I would scream, "Do you realize how much time this took?!!" if they said, "No, thanks".
Thanks for your invaluable advice.
