Student Portfolios / Reports
Produce a professional Report Card for your homeschooling student!
Spiral Bound, 210mm x 290mm
These Reports will help to take the work out of annual assessment, programming and recording.
They include clearly outlined lists of educational aims and objectives for each of the eight nationally recognised curriculum subjects: English, Mathematics, Society and Environment Studies, The Arts, Science, Health, Personal and Physical Development, Languages Other Than English, Technology and Enterprise.
Designed with an easy to follow format, the Reports come with a how to use guide and a list of sample assessment tasks.
Similar to those used by schools to advise parents of student progress the Home Education Reporst have been designed to be used in conjunction with other forms of recording, such as the Practical Homeschooling Weekly Homeschooling Diary, and a portfolio of dated work samples that illustrate the objectives and outcomes of the home education learning program.
The Home Education Portfolio / Report comprises:
Home Education Report: Early Childhood
Home Education Report: Middle Childhood
Home Education Report: Early Adolescence
What readers think...
"When we began homeschooling I had no idea how to write a curriculum for my children. Beverley's Home Education Reports said exactly what I wanted to say but didn't know how to. The lists of objectives for each subject remind me what the purpose is behind all the activities the children do. I find it much easier now that I organise much of their learning into projects and 'assignments' and the professional format looks good at the end of the year and impresses the rest of the family."
In Chapter 7 of Getting Started with Homeschooling Beverley writes on how to record and evaluate your homeschooling learning programs. The chapter has many examples of different recording styles and methods taken from over a decade of the Paine family homeschooling life.

About Home Education
Home education is a legal alternative to school education
in Australia. State and territory governments are responsible
for regulating home education and have different registration
requirements, however homeschooling families are able, and
encouraged, to develop curriculum and learning programs to suit
the educational and developmental needs of their individual children. For more information visit
