The record-keeping and planning program from Homeschool Tracker was a valuable high school tool. I started using Homeschool Tracker Plus before that (since 2004!) but not until high school came along did I appreciate the huge time-saving aspects of this program. I would much rather be spending time actually being with my boys and not tied to my desk creating plans and then recording my week by hand. I admit I did not use all the bells and whistles available from Homeschool Tracker. I used the aspects of the program that allowed me to keep simple records without a lot of fuss.
My summers were not taken up with creating high school plans manually. Homeschool Tracker took a subject and assign out pages and chapters into neat lesson plans after establishing a pattern. It was like magic! Once I had my assignments entered for one son, the next year I could reuse those same lessons with my younger son. Planning once, entering once, and using twice made my life so much easier.
With a push of a button I could see all the unfinished assignments for the week and create a task list for each boy with a few clicks. I also used Homeschool Tracker to keep a record of all the odds and ends we completed each year and then after collection them I could assign them a course.
I also could enter a score for each assignment and Homeschool Tracker accumulates the scores for me and assigned a grade. I don’t know how much time this has saved me over the years with two boys…hours and hours I would expect.
If we had a change in plans, Homeschool Tracker made it easy to adjust the assignments forward by bumping them to a new day easily. All the future assignments would roll over and we could just keep working. This was a lifesaver for our busy life. We never felt “behind”.
At the end of each year, Homeschool Tracker could create a report card and at the end of the senior year you can create a custom transcript easily! The process is super simple and it took no time at all. I was done with my record-keeping and off having summer fun in no time.
