TECHKNOW COURSE CREDITS AND STANDARDS
Our course credits are based on the recommendations made by the HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense Association).
Essentially, all of our courses are considered elective courses, therefore the HSLDA recommends 120 hours for a full credit course.
Accumulating 60 hours of course work will equate to 1/2 credit.
Our courses vary in complexity, so we weight each course from
1-4. One is our easiest course rating and 4 is our most difficult.
As elective courses, we estimate a homeschool student will spend the following hours/week:
Level 1 - 2 Hours / week
Level 2 - 4 Hours / week
Level 3 - 6 Hours / week
Level 4 - 8 Hours / week
We understand that all students study at varying paces, but we utilize this a benchmark for calculating course credits for transcripts.
In addition, we map all of our courses to national and Florida Department of Education Standards.
