HSHSP Ep 98: Assigning Grades for Homeschool Highschool Transcripts

Many of us homeschooling moms never assigned grades in elementary or middle school. We wanted our kids to learn to love education and not be pressured by grades.

But in homeschool highschool, we need to

  • Training perfectionistic teens on what a stopping point is. What is GOOD ENOUGH.
  • Training kids who don’t care at all about grades to discipline themselves. What is GOOD ENOUGH for them?
  • Training moms who are too soft or too hard on their teens how to stick to guidelines.

Self-discipline is the key for successful grading. AND self-discipline is a necessary life skill.

How can we homeschool moms manage grading homeschool highschoolers?

Follow Sabrina’s Guideline: Good grading comes from goals.

Set goals for each course. Make a formula that takes in the goals for each course for each student, including:

  • Effort
  • Mastery
  • Cooperation with peers (in a group class or co-op class)

Create a rubric for grading. Explain the rubric to the homeschool highschoolers so that they know what is expected and what will be graded.

  • Use rubrics, especially in courses that include writing, projects or labs. (Also, avail your teen of the peer review process if you have a co-op class.)
  • In concrete courses like math, you simply need to explain the grading process.
    • % of grade that comes from tests
    • % of grade that comes from daily assignments
    • % of grade that comes from attitude
    • Explain to teens that they will experience *subjective points* occasionally in co-op classes and in college
  • Homeschool moms have the right to adapt rubrics in textbooks for their goals.
