Free Homeschool Record-Keeping

Homeschool Skedtrak

Age Range: Hard to say. :) Designed for homeschool parents to track activities for grades K-12, but older students can certainly use it to track their schedules and keep their own records.

Today is Language Arts Day at ClickSchooling. While I usually stick to recommending sites that enhance learning about reading, spelling, grammar, and writing on this day — I couldn’t resist sharing this free resource, developed by a homeschool family, that enables you to track your homeschool course of study and activities for free.

I know from conducting numerous Homeschool 101 presentations, that keeping records is a big concern to many parents — especially once the kids hit the high school years and need to create transcripts for college. While this site is designed with homeschool parents in mind, older students can certainly use it for record-keeping purposes — and get some practice using their language arts skills as well.

You don’t have to be a school-at-homer to keep records. This system will allow unschoolers to keep track of the many learning opportunities and interests they have explored as well.

ClickScholar Theresa recommended Homeschool Skedtrack when she forwarded the description from the site that says it all:

“Homeschool Skedtrack is a *FREE* online lesson planner, scheduler, and tracking system rolled into one. The heart of the system is the automated scheduling of activities that frees you from the headache of rescheduling everything once an activity/lesson is missed.” Features include:

  • Easy record keeping from K-12 for each student of daily activities/lessons per course
  • Worry free data back-up
  • Scheduling and tracking of field trips, vacations, and holidays
  • A school calendar for each student
  • A resource list per course
  • Tests recording
  • Automated grade calculation
  • Report card generation in pdf format
  • Transcript generation in pdf format

There are even video tutorials at the site to explain how to use the Homeschool Skedtrack program.

Not only that, this site offers a database of terrific educational websites (many that have been recommended by ClickSchooling over the years). Not only does the database include websites on various subject topics such as math, science, music, homeschool resources, etc., it allows the users/visitors to rate the sites which can be helpful in determining overall usefulness.
