    Behavior Signs of a Good Fit

    Students who have a satisfying experience learning online usually share the following behaviors.

    • Good time management
    • Effective communication channels to ask for help
    • Independent Study Habits
    • Self-motivation
    • Able to navigate and use tools online

    If a student is lacking in these areas, a mentor who can help monitor & motivate progress is extremely important. And help student create a predictable routine that removes any barriers to getting started and increasing time on task each day. Another tip for struggling students would be to keep their momentum while working by not letting them sit and wait to progress through lessons. Lastly, recognize that computer-based instruction may not be the best fit until behaviors are fully supported.

  • How long do I have to complete the course?

    Posted by:

    Course work is to be completed within a semester from start of enrollment. Exact dates and times for deadlines are posted on the Edgenuity site under, “Communications and Announcements” It is in your best interest to work at least an hour per day, per course. So, if you are enrolled in two courses you should plan on spending at least two hours each day completing course materials. If you are starting a "bonus course" after completing a course within a semester you will have the rest of that school year to complete the "bonus course".

  • Color Codes and Monitoring Progress

    Posted by:

    You must complete all required coursework and pass the final exam with 60% or higher in order to earn a credit. If your progress bar is in the red, that means you are behind and need to get caught up. blue means on target, and green means you are ahead.

    A teaceher should only click on “Complete” only after they have verified notes and test review (due diligence)

  • How do I know what my grade is?

    Posted by:

    Click on “My Course Info” after you login. You will see three grades. The Overall Grade is what you have earned on completed assignments. Teachers should reference this grade daily to determine whether a student is beginning to struggle with mastering the content. If this metric begins to decrease, the student is not mastering content. The Actual Grade adjusts for progress if a student is behind. This score doesn't assume zeros for uncompleted work; simply penalizes for falling behind. Assigning zeros could swing a grade dramatically depending on the weight of the uncompleted activities. The actual grade takes progress into account and shows students who are not on pace. Some teachers use this for progress reports. The Relative Grade is the grade that a student would receive if he/she stopped working and received 0% for all unfinished activities. The relative grade is the final grade in course for CR and CA course tracks.

  • How many attempts do I get on each quiz, test, and final exam?

    Posted by:

    You are allowed three attempts (with pre-testing counting as one attempt in Credit Recovery courses that have pretesting turned on). Note that Credit Accrual courses have pretesting turned off. You may use your notes on quizzes or tests other than the Final Exam.

    If the notes are incomplete or missing, you will need to have the student correct them and have you review them again before allowing them retakes.  Another option would be reset direct instruction, which will force student to re-watch and take notes.
