Credit Recovery Features
Educators can give students the ability to earn credits for failed or incomplete courses without having to repeat the entire course, enabling students to complete the work at their own pace and focus on just the concepts they have not yet mastered.
Credit Recovery (CRx) ModeWhen Odysseyware curriculum is used in Credit Recovery (CRx) Mode, students are assigned a pre-test at the beginning of each unit to determine if they are already competent in concepts addressed in the unit. If the student achieves a score at or above the predetermined CRx Pass Threshold, the program automatically skips the rest of the unit and the student takes the pretest for the following unit. If not, the system assigns the lessons within the unit to the student.
Flex CRx ModeUsing Flex CRx Mode, a student who fails the unit pre-test but shows mastery of certain concepts will be able to skip those lessons in the unit. The software automatically creates a custom learning path that assigns only the specific lessons within that unit that contains content the pre-test assessed as needing remediation. The teacher then has the ability to further customize each student’s learning path.
Flex AssessmentsThe Flex Assessment feature automatically removes the assessment questions for the lessons skipped in Flex CRx mode, as well as adjusts to match any changes made by the teacher to the lesson sequence.
Scaffolded Instructional SupportsStudents have a variety of embedded instructional supports at their fingertips in every lesson, including literacy, fluency, and audio scaffolds. They also receive immediate feedback throughout lessons and assessments to guide their learning.
