If you are preparing a high school transcript for a homeschooler, and he or she has used a variety of different materials, outside courses and curricula to complete their coursework, then you may be wondering how to tally the credits for the courses they have taken.
The purpose of this guide is to help you decide how much credit to assign to each subject by looking at good equivalents for each type of learning tool.
In general, a course that takes approximately a school year, or 120-180 hours of work to complete counts as one credit. A course that takes approximately one semester, or 60 hours to complete, would receive a half credit. But with every student’s homeschooling journey being unique, how does that play out in terms of different learning materials? Take a look at the following infographic to help you decide.
