  1. HomeschoolSkedTrack.com Review by Denise
    Pros: free, comprehensive, planning and reporting in one place,
    Cons: Requires some prep time to get it set up initially; should check in daily to report work completed

    Grades Used: 4-9

    I can’t say enough about how important homeschoolskedtrack is to my home school! No more need for paper records – I love it! I do print off report cards but the rest of my records are stored on their website and then I back them up on my computer at home. This has been especially helpful for me seeing as I use a bit of an eclectic homeschool style. With skedtrack, I can ensure that I am covering all the bases and balancing out my units. You can print out not only report cards, but course reports. This will be very helpful for transcript preparation. My kids log in each morning to see what subjects and assignments they need to do, and when completed check them off.

  2. HomeschoolSkedTrack.com Review by Sharolyn
    Pros: Easy to use, creates great reports, great tutorials
    Cons: Have to make sure hours/days of the week line up with your planned calendar year. See below

    Started toying with this resource two years ago. Skipped a year as I wasn’t sure it was worn the effort of typing in assignments. Returned to it this year and think I am hooked now.

    When you get started it takes up I through some very well done tutorials to show you all around the program. You can start mid-year even and it all works out really well. In fact, I have yet to use it from the beginning of a school year but plan to for next year. It can be time consuming to enter assignments all at once but you don’t have to for this to work. You can enter them in daily, weekly or all in advance. You can track multiple children and multiple school years. It is easy to copy information from one school year to another or one child to another if you are tracking subjects they do together.

    The daily list can be printed for your kids to follow (my kids love having their own list). Once they complete an assignment, it is checked off and the following day the next assignment shows up. If, though, you don’t get to everything scheduled for that day of the week it will simply show up the next day of the week that course is scheduled. It easily records field trips and keeps a wonderful attendance record. You can record grades or not. It is very flexible.

    My biggest learning curve was setting up the school year to fit the timeframe I wanted to complete our school year in. When you set up a school year you assign how many days to complete in the school year, how many vacation days, assign days off, etc. You also assign hours per day per student (they give recommended timeframes per grade level). Then when you set up a course you also assign a time frame for each course. This is great for families that need to record hours completed rather than days. I assign averages to each. Once assignments are completed it will record days based on how many hours your child completes. So, say you have a school year of 180 days and a school day that is 5 hours. Ever five hours will then count as a completed school day regardless of the calendar day. If your child is doing more that that, has extra field trips, etc. and the hours start rack up and suddenly your school year will be cut short. The calendar will show the last day as say, April 20 and it just ends. No more assignments after that. I school regardless of how much work is done/days completed. I want the curriculum covered or school done to a certain date, etc. The good news is that this can e easily remedied by adjusting the length of your school day (assinging more hours) or lowering the time you record per subject.

    So, once you pass the learning curve with this it is highly functional and very flexible. I think there are features I haven’t even used yet. I am excited to use it and feel blessed that such an amazing resource is available free of cost. The providers of this resource are extremely generous of their time and talent and I am very thankful!
