Assigning Semester One grades

  • 1.  Assigning Semester One grades

    Posted 27 days ago
    If students don't complete a class, and I mark it "complete", does it just take the actual grade as reflected in the progress report? On that same note, should I just "disable" courses if students never even opened them? Students who never started a course are just getting the failing grade anyway.  Does it matter if it's marked "completed" or "disabled"?

    Hello,
    I would not mark the courses complete if they were not completed. Disable them.

    I have been told to mark the courses "Complete", but I'm choosing to leave them disabled if they are incomplete, as I believe this is a course integrity issue.

    To us, it matters.  We pull data from complete courses to see how we are doing– and use the progress report as proof of a student completing a course and attach that to the certificate we create. I would not mark a course completed unless is was actually completed.

     

    Also, I wonder about your "semester" comment-we use Edgenuity as a self-paced course so semesters don't really come into play for us.  Are you using it differently? I'd like to better understand how you are using it.

    We are using the program as the choice for our 100% remote students.  They are following the same schedule as the in-school students.  We used the semester as a deadline for the one-semester courses. So, only classes completed at 100% should be marked complete?  All others should be disabled?  

    Also, we are using the actual grade metric.  So, we do not plan to enter 0 for any work not done.  Thoughts?

    Ahhh – that makes sense.  I still do not think courses that are not complete should be marked complete- but that is your call.  I wonder if an administrator at your school would entertain a discussion of allowing students to still finish these courses as an intervention-type plan.  In this crazy time of COVID, it might not be a bad idea to use this as an intervention tool.
