Inhaltsangabe: Homeschoolers need to know how to keep simple, accurate high school records in order to create a transcript that will "wow" college admissions counselors. Transcripts Made Easy is designed to be simple and doable, even for parents who are getting a late start in record-keeping, or who aren't completely comfortable with using the computer. This third edition of the classic Transcripts Made Easy covers everything parents need in order to assign grades, grant credit, and keep the right records. New in this edition is a chapter on Records and Transcripts for Special Needs Students, quotes from college admissions counselors on what they want to see in the homeschool transcript, and more information on granting credit and weighted grades for AP and honors courses. Transcripts Made Easy provides clear, step-by-step instructions for creating several types of transcripts using simple word processing software that most people already know how to use. This compact book is all homeschool parents need to know about keeping records and creating a transcript for high school!
Vom Autor: I remember the day my 16-year-old said, "Hey, mom-- I want to take some classes at the community college." Although he had already earned some college credit through CLEP exams, I didn't know if I was quite ready to send him off to college! However, dual credit really was the most practical way for him to take the higher math and lab sciences he needed in order to graduate, so we decided to start off with a couple of classes. The problem was, the deadline for applying to the college was only days away. I wasn't ready for this! I kept his high school records in a system of files and folders, but I hadn't consolidated any of it onto a transcript. That was on my 'round-to-it' list! I pulled out all the resources I owned on homeschooling through high school. Many of them were truly helpful in deciding what to study, but there wasn't any clear-cut instruction on how to create a homeschool transcript that would present my student in the best possible way to a college admissions department. I wanted to see actual transcript samples! I needed to know how to figure a grade point average, and how to grant credit for honors classes! I wanted to see how to include things like AP and CLEP exams, as well as volunteer work and hobbies. There wasn't time to find the kind of instruction book I wanted, though, as the application deadline was looming. I made the best transcript I could, formatted like my own high school and college transcripts, but it was at that point I realized that if there wasn't a good book on creating transcripts, I had to write one. So, just in time for my second son's college entrance, the first edition of Transcripts Made Easy was published. I found that high school paperwork can be pretty simple, especially if you start at the very beginning, and go step by step (isn't anything easier that way?). In the book, I've shown you how to start from the very beginning of high school, but because of my own experience, I've also shown you how to jump right in and pull together a transcript when you weren't expecting to. If, like me, you don't want to spend any more time (or money) than necessary on record keeping, Transcripts Made Easy is for you. I hope you'll find it helpful.
