A Detailed Course Survey
Can help with creating transcripts and portfolios. In this
type of survey, you go to a higher level of detail in your planning.
Optionally you can include a book list of your intended texts. It
is important to update a detailed course survey throughout the year
so you have an accurate record of what you did.
