Review Homeschool Records with 4 Easy Steps

Review Homeschool Records with 4 Easy Steps

When I review course descriptions for my Gold Care Club members, and doing a document review for the Comprehensive Record Solution purchasers, there are some common errors that I see. 

  • Make sure to use a large enough font size to read. I suggest size 10 or larger. 
  • Keep class titles on a single line, and make sure you are naming the class (Pre-Calculus) not the curriculum (Saxon Advanced Math).
  • Make sure you have included ALL ways that you have evaluated your child - not just tests. Tests alone don't give an accurate description of what your child knows. 
  • Make sure to do a final review after you make any corrections. While others can help you with content and words, only you can prevent forest fires - or complete the final review before you mail off your course descriptions.

How to Do the Final Review in 4 Easy Steps

  1. Update the table of contents again.
  2. Spell check first, to get the easy spelling and spacing problems.
  3. Then shrink it to 50% to see if you have any formatting problems. Shrinking the view down can help pick up a change in margins, or in font size.
  4. Then enlarge the document to 150% and read it again. That can help you pick up spelling or grammar problems that are not found by a standard spell check. Remember that you can have spelling errors that aren't picked up by spell check. (Just because it's a word, doesn't mean it was the right word.)

  • Help for Homeschooling Middle School

    Many parents feel anxious about homeschooling middle school. Parents can find themselves suddenly staring across the breakfast table at strangers. Delightfully compliant children can suddenly act out like surly teens with attitude.

    A homeschool transcript is part of your child's educational background that you will have to provide when you help them go through the college admissions process.
