Record Keeping, Grading, and Transcripts

If you would like to keep track of your student’s progress as they move from lesson to lesson, you can use our Record Keeping Sheets. Specific level Record Keeping Sheets are available for levels Alpha through Pre-Algebra. They are included immediately following the copyright page in the Student Workbooks and as a printable PDF in the Digital Toolbox for these levels.

You can also download a blank Record Keeping Sheet here.

To access the Record Keeping Sheet PDFs for levels AlphaPre-Algebra:

1) Log into the Demme Learning Digital Toolbox.

  • If you have purchased directly from Demme Learning (Math-U-See, Spelling You See, Analytical Grammar), you should already have an account. Use the email address and password that you’ve used to place your order. If you have an account but have forgotten your password, you can request to reset it here.
  • If you have not purchased directly from Demme Learning (Math-U-See, Spelling You See, Analytical Grammar), you will need to sign up for a free Digital Toolbox account. You can sign up for a free account here.

2)  From the left drop-down menu titled “Select a Product,” select “Math-U-See.”

3) Select the level needed (AlphaPre-Algebra). You must first have “Math-U-See” selected in the left drop-down menu.

4) After selecting a level, select a lesson from the right box. If you have purchased a Digital Pack, you will have access to all lessons for the purchased level. If you have not purchased a level’s Digital Pack, you will have access to the first three lessons.

5) After you select a lesson, tabs will appear below the video box.

6) Choose the “Resources” tab.

7) Select the level’s Record Keeping Sheet.

What grading system does Math-U-See recommend?

Homeschool laws and requirements differ from state to state, so each homeschooling parent will need to check what your state requires for record-keeping and grading. HSLDA is a great resource to find out information about your state’s specific requirements.

Math-U-See does not have a recommended grading system. If you want or need to give grades, you may use any system that makes sense to you and that you feel fairly reflects your child’s progress.

Does my student need a transcript? What do I need to put on the transcript?

The requirements for homeschool record keeping vary from state to state. Even if your state does not require you to report a homeschool agenda, it is in your student’s best interest to keep track of their accomplishments. 

There are loads of great resources and advice to be found on the internet. One source that has aggregated a lot of great information is the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA).

HSLDA has provided homeschool transcript samples, preparation resources, and much more.
If you need a description of our secondary math courses (Pre-Algebra through Calculus and Stewardship), you can find them here.
