Design Credit Recovery, GED, HiSET & TASC Readiness programs to meet diverse student population needs in order to prepare students for graduation and success.

In recent years, online credit-recovery courses and programs have developed quickly, as the need for students to recover credits has increased. Limited space and the lack of available staff are just some of the challenges that arise for administrators in regard to recovery programs. As credit recovery is a relatively new concept, some educators debate whether the credit recovery course experience should be the same or different for the student who has never taken the course. Teachers should feel confident that students in credit recovery programs are learning the same content offered in a traditional class.

Some ideas to evaluate when developing a credit recovery option:

  • Identify student characteristics and history to determine eligibility and best route for course completion
  • Monitor progress closely to assure student success
  • Consider ideal stopping points and assessment opportunities throughout the course
  • Latest technology developments allow for school, class and student customization
  • Equip teachers with instant student feedback and easy communication tools to students and parents

Credit recovery should engage the students while challenging them to achieve their true potential. Schools are finding an increased level of success when credit recovery programs are flexible, challenging and customizable.

High school equivalency exams are widely used in districts where out-of-school youth and adults are given the opportunity to demonstrate their high school-level proficiency and their readiness for higher education or the workplace. With the GED, HiSET (High School Equivalency Test by ETS Educational Testing Services, and TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion from CTB/McGraw Hill) are all being offered on paper and/or online starting in 2014, it is important for students to be ready, not only for the content tested, but also for the format of the online testing. With high school equivalency test preparation designed to mirror the exams, students can be prepared to meet their goals and find success.
