Apex and Teacher Assistance Policies for School Closings

All courses:  The number of attempts for quizzes is at 2 instead of 1. This will allow a student to try to pass a quiz twice before it locks down and needs a teacher’s input to open or move on. All CST’s except the Course Final are open.  Hopefully this change will keep. We had changed it yesterday and this morning for some reason all the CSTs were locked.  We have tried a different way to unlock, so hopefully it will work.  If not, students will have to ask for a CST to be opened. 

 

High School Prescriptive Courses:  We have taken the Pre-test requirement out.  In other words, when a student completes a Unit, it should move them to the next Unit’s first activity. All courses are set to 2 attempts for quizzes and all CSTs are open except for final.

 

High School Non-Prescriptive Course:  All non-prescriptive courses are set to 2 attempts for quizzes and all CSTs are open except for final

 

Middle School Course:  If a student makes 60% or higher on any activity, Apex will move them forward.  The number of attempts for quizzes is now 2 instead of 1.  All CSTs are open except for final

 

Elective Courses:  All elective courses are set at 2 attempts instead of 1 for quizzes.   All CSTs are open except for final.

 

Teacher Availability: Unlock and assistance requests can be expected to be answered same day if requested Mon-Fri 8:30-2:30. If outside these hours, it may be the next day. Weekend requests may be as late as Monday.
