Edgenuity is a unique online class that allows for self-paced learning while completing required credits for graduation. Edgenuity keeps track of all assessments and provides students with all the tools for success. Students will still need to take notes, use good studying habits and work towards completing the course. Semester courses must be completed by December 16, 2017 and year-long courses by May 26, 2018.
Edgenuity coursework is available online and students are expected to work for the entire block to keep on track. Attendance is critical to student success in online courses. When absent, students are required to make up lost time by working after school in the library and/or at home. The time requirement outside of class will be directly related to your work ethic.
Course requirements vary but usually include the following:
Online video lectures Lab activities (math and science) Assessments Journal writing Vocabulary Quizzes Tests Cumulative exam
UNDERSTANDING THE PROGRESS REPORT
Course Completed percentage: Indicates the percent of the course completed, calculated by the number of assignments completed vs. the total number of assignments in the course weighted by the average time it takes the student to complete the types of assignments.
Color-coded completion squares: Red: You are falling behind Blue: You are on track Green: You are ahead of schedule in the course
Target Completion: Indicates how far along in the course you should be based on the start and target dates.
GRADES Student grades in PowerSchool will reflect the “Actual Grade” within Edgenuity. If he or she is on target this grade will match their “Overall Grade”
Overall Grade: Percentage grade based on a 0%-100% scale for all activities and assessments completed.
Relative Grade: Reflects the student’s final course grade if they drop the course. Any uncompleted activities are assigned zeros.
Actual Grade: Based on the overall grade in relation to the percentage of course work completed vs. the percentage of coursework that should have been completed.
RETAKES It is expected for students to request additional retakes if a grade is less than a 70. Talk with your instructor. Students are allowed to use their own notes on quizzes and tests. The instructor can view the student’s daily progress report, which will show active time and idle time for each log in session so students should use their time wisely.
