Gradebook+ is a free gradebook and record-keeping spreadsheet template for homeschool. I created Gradebook+ to use for my own high school son, but it can be used for any grade level.
It's easy-to-use and customizable to fit your own homeschool, and detailed instructions for using the spreadsheet template are included.
Gradebook+ is free for personal use, but I ask that you do not redistribute it.

Gradebook+ for Microsoft Excel* (right-click & choose "Save As")
NOTE: To use Gradebook+ with multiple students, you'll need to save a separate file for each student.
*DISCLAIMER: I designed Gradebook+ in Open Office, and while I am able to save the file in Excel format, and I have tested Gradebook+ with various versions of Excel, I cannot guarantee that it will work exactly the same in all versions of Excel. If it doesn't work well for you in your Excel, I'd recommend downloading Open Office at the link above and using Gradebook+ with that.
