Homeschool Grade Tracking

I know that a lot of relaxed homeschoolers do not care to keep track of every little grade, but the nit-picking perfectionist in me needs to do so. It's an obsession-thing! :) Actually, I really do not do it for anything more than for peace of mind, something I can refer to if someone "questions" me as to what we've done, and to check of that beautiful "to-do" list! It also is just makes keeping my records in one place that much more easy. Everything is there, and all backed up for safe-keeping!

As for how our family corrects/grades school work, see THIS post on At The Well. After I correct and grade each of the children's assignments or after each project is completed, I enter them into a computer program called The Homeschool Tracker.

This system (screenshot above) allows for so much flexibility. I use it to keep track of attendance and enter assignments for each day, attaching documents, as needed. That is pretty much all I do with this program, but there is so much more that one can do with it, if you so desire! There's help with keeping track with lesson planning, field trips, transcripts, goals, reading logs/progress, memorization and more! I could go on and on, but wouldn't you rather just check it out?
