Making the Grade - Guide to Homeschool Grading!

The HomeScholar released a new eBook to help you learn to evaluate your child's work, with or without tests!

Many homeschool parents stress over grading their children's work, and wonder whether they can even give valid grades. Homeschool grades must be submitted on the transcript when their children apply for college (because almost all colleges require them). Unfortunately, some parents change the way they homeschool—when everything is working just fine—and make each day more "schoolish" in order to generate these grades. But they don't have to! In her newly released ebook, "Making the Grades: A Grouch-Free Guide to Homeschool Grading" (available on Amazon for just $2.99), homeschool author and consultant Lee Binz will help you learn to evaluate your child's work, with or without tests!

"Making the Grades" is part of The HomeScholar's Coffee Break Book series. Designed especially for parents who want more concise reading on homeschooling high school, each book combines Lee's practical and friendly approach with detailed, but "sip-able" information, perfect to read over a cup of coffee! "Making the Grades" brims with a variety of methods for evaluating your child's work, including examples from public and private schools as well as alternatives to typical testing strategies. This book will help you grow in confidence, and encourage you with new ideas and methods, without having to discard your own criteria, methods, and strategies that have worked so far in your homeschool. Homeschooler K. Shinn says, "While reading though Lee's own experiences and tips, I felt more 'at ease' and 'relaxed' about how I assign grades. Highly recommend this resource if you are struggling with 'how' to grade." Jeness agrees, "This book was very helpful in getting my mind set on how to prepare for college with transcripts, grades, course descriptions, planning for each grade level in high school. It broke things down into exactly what to do before, during and at the end of each grade. This is just what I needed."
