As I was considering attending this year’s HEAV Conference I thought back to the heavily discussed subject of the High School Transcript. While walking around the Expo there must have been 5 or 6 different offerings ranging from $25 to $100! I though what could be so hard about a transcript program??? (I used to calculate my own grades in Junior High just so I could figure out how much time I was going to be grounded.) Anyway, I asked around and no one could really tell me what the deal was except to say that they stressed out every so often about the thought of having to put one of these together.
I hope to help you avoid that stress. TranscriptTemplate is an Excel spreadsheet that I’ve been working on and while it’s not finished (call it Beta1) it is ready for input from Educators such as yourselves to take a look and tell me what you’d like changed.
A few notes: the formulations are accurate (including weighted GPAs). The Subject names are edited within each semester worksheet (the tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet) and will automatically populate the Transcript. You can also change the weight of each part of the graded material (homework vs quizzes, etc) so you can get the exact ratio you want (just make sure it equals 100% :).)
I look forward to your input!
