Homeschool Transcript – What grading scale should I use for my homeschool?

November 17, 2007

>>>>Melissa wanted to know what grading scale I used, because she had seen
a wide variety of scales used in books and other schools.<<<<

Melissa,
I used this grading scale:

90-100=A
80-89=B
70-79=C
60-69=D

I chose it because I wanted my kids to work for mastery, but not necessarily perfection. If they demonstrated mastery, with 90% or more, then I gave them an A and a 4.0.

I also chose that scale because it made the math on the transcript easier.

I don’t think it matter WHICH grading scale, I think it just matters that you have one for the purposes of your transcript. Just choose a grading scale – ANY grading scale. If you simply can’t decide, then throw a dart at it!

When my children started college, I saw the different teachers all choose different grading scales for each class. The college itself chooses another grading scale. There is a huge variety out there! Just do what’s right for your child.

Blessings,
Lee
