Is it acceptable to use ‘keep track of’ in the given sentence? Should I say ‘performance’ or ‘progress’?

It is necessary for the parents to keep track of their children’s academic (performance, progress).


Yes, this is fine.

I think 'progress' is the better word to use as you're looking to 'keep track of' something, in other words follow it over a period of time. Therefore 'progress', which refers to performance over time, is probably a better choice than 'performance'.


Thank you very much, David Hatton.
