Tests on transcript


 

Some schools, and some homeschools, will put high school test results on the high school transcript.

I suggest you only put test scores on a transcript if it makes your child look smarter by doing it.  In other words, average scores can be left off the transcript. The scores will be sent directly to the college anyway, so there is no reason to highlight average scores by pointing it out on the transcript.  But if you have above average scores, then make sure colleges see that!  Include that information on the transcript when possible.

The PSAT score is not usually included on the transcript.  Instead, include the RESULT of the PSAT score.  Should the student become a National Merit Scholar, semi-finalist or commended student, you would make a note of that on the transcript.

Rachel,
Average on the SAT is 500 per section.
Average on the PSAT is 50 per section.
Average on the ACT is about 21.
If you need to know what's a good score for your student, that's a good conversation to have on the Gold Care Club, because average for one child can be fabulous (or stinky) for another child. You can read about the Gold Care Club here: http://www.thehomescholar.com/gold-care.php.
Blessings,
Lee

Thanks for this tip, Lee...but I am very unsure as to what constitutes "average" scores, and what scores are worthy of appearing on a transcript. Could you please tell me which ACT and SAT scores are above-average? Thanks so much!

  • Foreign Language Credit for Bilingual Students

    In public schools, they give high school credit for being bilingual and you can do it, too. My local school district has the goal of 100% of children becoming bilingual, so that all graduates can speak, read, and write in another language. They plan to do this by awarding high school credit for "competency in heritage languages" - they will grant high school
