Q: How long do I have to complete my lessons?
- A: The attendance data is pulled on Tuesday, and absences are determined that day. You have from Monday morning through Sunday at midnight to complete your lessons, or a 7 day period.
Q: If I work in just one course at a time, will I be counted absent?
- A: No, as long as you finish your required number of assignments per week. You can complete all of your required assignments in a week in one subject area if you want to.
Q: If I finish all my courses early, will I be marked absent once I stop working?
- A: No. If we see that a student has finished all coursework for the term, we no longer count attendance because the student is ‘ahead’ and will not be penalized.
Q: Can I work ahead to take a week off?
- A: Yes, if you are ahead in your assignments, you will not be marked absent.
Q: If I miss just one day, should I notify someone?
- A: Attendance is determined weekly, not daily. If you miss a day or two but are able to complete all of your lessons for the week, you do not need to notify anyone. If you miss enough time in your online courses to interfere with finishing your required lessons, you may want to inform the cyber advisor.
Q: If I only manage to finish 20 lessons one week, and I need to complete 30 lessons for the week, will I be required to finish 40 the next week?
- A: No, we only require each week that you do your required number of assignments. So, in this case, each week, you need to complete 30 lessons to be counted as attending. The math begins with your total lessons from the previous week. If you finished only 20 lessons in one week and you're not ahead, you would be absent. You would need to complete 30 lessons the next week to not be absent again. However, you would still need to add some lessons to complete your courses before the term ends. While doing this may prevent you from getting an absence, it could also mean not finishing or passing your courses if you do not find time to get caught up before the term ends.
