Review: My Home School Grades

My Home School Grades is an innovative new approach to keeping your home school records.  Designed and developed by a successful home educating father and a home school graduate with an idea, they have used their intimate knowledge of the needs of the homeschooling family to provide this exciting new app.  And it couldn’t be easier!

To use the app, you simply log in, add your student, and begin adding classes and activities.  You can select from leading curriculum providers, add your own, or just give a one time grade for each class.  If your student is in high school and you need a transcript, it’s literally just a click of the button to generate one from the information you’ve already added!

The website contains “How to” videos for adding students, adding classes, adding activities, and creating your transcript, but honestly, you probably won’t need them. It really is that simple.

observations

In the past, I have tried other software products and found them to be so cumbersome, that I gave up after just a couple months and many hours.  I tried making a file in Excel and in Word, but that didn’t quite have the finished appearance I was looking for in a transcript.  Then I was asked to review My Home School Grades!

Within the first few minutes, I knew this was what I needed. (So even if you’re not sure this is something you can use, you should definitely take advantage of their 14-day free trial.)

I never considered the benefit of having a mobile app to get the job done. I usually work on my home school record keeping at home, at my desk. But now, if we’re on a field trip or involved in an extra-curricular activity, I can simply add it to my records on the fly. (If I wait until I get home, I will undoubtedly forget!) 

Honestly, this could not be simpler to use. And yet, it has all the features I need to create a record of all our classes and activities and most important for me, with high schools students at home, the ability to create a professional looking transcript.  My Home School Grades automatically calculates a GPA based on the grades you’ve entered, and you generate a printable copy with just the click of the mouse or a touch of a finger!

Because this is a brand new product, they have been very open with suggestions based on our needs and have promptly responded to any issues we have had with this ground breaking new app.  I look forward to the features they will be adding in the months ahead.

Bottom Line:  This was perfect timing for us as we are finishing one high school transcript and beginning another. They definitely live up to their claim. Simple..Robust…Powerful
