Summer School Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to do in a day?
You should plan on completing 1-2 activities per day in order to stay on pace. These activities are Tutorials, Mastery Tests, Discussion Posts, or Unit Activities. You should start at the top of the Courseware list and work your way down until you have everything completed.
What are tutorials, mastery tests, discussions, and unit activities?
Tutorial: This is where you learn the content for the class. Think of tutorials as classwork. You will need to go through each page and complete everything in the tutorial to complete it.
Mastery Test: A test on what you learned in the Tutorial. You need to get at least 80% on a test to reach “mastery” and move on. If you need to retake the test, let me know and I will unlock it for you, but make sure you review the tutorial first.
Discussion: This is a short discussion question that is related to the course. Make sure you answer the whole question.
Unit Activity: This is a larger project to go with the course. Unit activities typically involve research and writing related to the course.
Course Test: This is a 20-question final for the course. You can retake this test to improve your score, but you may need to let me know so I can unlock it.
How will I get marked as “present” for a day?
If you log in to Edmentum and complete or make significant progress on an activity, you will be marked as “present”.
How will I know if an activity is done?
There is a circle next to each activity. If the circle is empty, it means you haven’t started it. If the circle is halfway filled in, it is partially completed. If the circle is blue, it is complete.
How do I know if I am on track to finish the course on time?
At the top of your course page, there is a pacing plan that tells you if you are behind, on pace, or ahead of pace. Try to get 1-2 activities done in a day so you are “on pace”.
How do I know what my grade is?
On your course, you should be able to see a Current Grade and a Course Grade. Your Current Grade is what you have earned on the activities that you have completed. For example, if you have earned 100% on your assignments so far, your Current Grade will be 100%. The Course Grade is what your final grade would be if you didn’t complete any more assignments. The Course Grade counts all incomplete activities as a 0. That’s why it’s important to complete all activities. Pay attention to both the Current Grade and the Course Grade.
