Weightless Excel G&A

grades-attendance-xlsThis Grades & Attendance file is not a weighty matter, it’s just straight up grades.

The no-weight grades and attendance is not a new item, it has always been available on the youngminds website. Someone recently wrote me regarding the donnayoung.org G&A with the test column. I could see that those who do not need to weigh grades would be better served to have the no weight G&A and it is now online at http://donnayoung.org/forms/planners/exgrade_attend.htm

    It worked for me. I checked sometimes. I am not really sure that I am doing it right, so it is kind of a “tressa” version of weighted grades. But, it works for me. I will have to figure something else out by high school.

    Tanya asked what weighted grades were – I also wonder if homeschool moms should or should not use them. I am a beginner and I have a 9th grader…

    Adrienne, I have really never thought about if a homeschooler should or shouldn’t give more weight to some grades than others. Thinking about it just now, I’d say that it’s not black and white, that it depends on the children’s grade level, courses, and if mom is giving her children special assignments that require extra work (and grade value).

    If I were to generalize, I’d suppose that high school students would be the group most likely to have their grades weighted. I started weighing test scores higher when my children were in 7th grade.

    I’ve home schooled for about 10 years so far and have another 8 years to go! I have always weighted my kids grades. Of course I’m a certified Teachers Aid even though I’ve only taught my own kids. I find it encourages them to work harder, especially because they know I work hard not only setting up their day, collecting or creating curriculm but grading their work.
