Edgenuity Expectation Agreement
2020-2021

You have chosen to have your scholar follow the Edgenuity online learning curriculum for the semester. Like you, we want your scholar to have the most rewarding learning experience possible and academic success. The following guidelines will help you stay on pace and be successful managing the coursework. After reviewing this document, please sign it, acknowledging that you have reviewed this guidance with your scholar and understand what is required for successful completion of Edgenuity courses.

Logging In: If this is your first time using Edgenuity at The ASK Academy, click or type: https://auth.edgenuity.com/Login/Login/Student into the address bar, username is your ASK email address and your first time password is ask2020. Please change your password after logging in for the first time. If you had a previous account, use your original credentials to log in.

Schedule: Check your Edgenuity schedule against your ASK schedule to make sure you are enrolled in all classes. For example, if you had Honors English make sure you are enrolled in the Honors Language Arts Edgenuity course. 

4th Period FC/CP: You will stay with your current FC/CP ASK project manager and be required to meet with that class every Wednesday virtually. Please stay in contact with your FC/CP project manager as various communication takes place through that class since it is both a credit and ASK Academy requirement. 

Course Completion Deadline is: 12/14/2020. All work needs to be completed by this date.

  1. Your online courses will be presented by an Edgenuity Instructor. Curriculum, assignments, and grading will be Edgenuity generated. Although some assignments may also require ASK project managers to grade them, the majority of work, grading,etc. is from Edgenuity.
  2. Edgenuity courses are not structured like regular classes where you need to be in a certain room, at a certain time, for a certain amount of time. You will have access to your classes 24/7. However, the recommended time for each class is approximately 1 hour per day per class. That means that if you have 6 classes you should plan for 6 hours each day, or split it up including weekend work time to lessen the daily time. Edgenuity is designed around a 5 day school week, so make sure you stay on target. 
  3. English Language Arts (ELA): Every ELA class includes reading a novel (included online) and associated work and will count as 10% of the ELA final grade (90% ELA class and 10% novel).
  4. If your scholar needs assistance with progressing in Edgenuity, please have them contact the assigned project manager via Google Classroom. For example, if your scholar needs a reset for a test/quiz/activity they will need to reach out to the Edgenuity project manager via Google Classroom to request a reset. Additionally, when your scholar is ready to take their final exam, he/she will need to email the Edgenuity project managers to schedule a time to have the test unlocked. We ask that this is done when a parent/guardian is available to monitor the scholar so please have a date/time in mind before contacting the project manager to unlock the final.
  5. Edgenuity allows scholars to see their grades at any time. The grade will not only show how the scholar has done on assignments, but also course progress. Because the course will end December 14th, scholars will be able to see what percentage of the course they have completed and how much remains. Make sure that both the scores and completion rate are both good and on track.
  6. If you get stuck, Edgenuity allows you to re-watch the lessons as many times as you need. There are also help features that are tied to the content. If that does not help, you can go to the Google Classroom and use the support sites we have compiled. If the concept is still not clear, you can reach out to your subject area project manager during support hours.
  7. As stated above, grades and progress are always updating and always available. An additional feature of Edgenuity allows you to monitor not only grades and progress but actual time on task. This function will also account for active learning and idle time – that means that just logging into class is not the same as taking part in the lesson. 
  8. If you notice that your scholar is falling behind, not spending enough time, or struggling with the curriculum please support, discuss, and work with them.
  9. If you have technical problems with the Edgenuity platform, access their tech help. If it is an issue with the ASK Academy device your scholar is using, please submit a help ticket by emailing Kim Pierce (kimpierce@theaskacademy.org). In your email, please indicate the scholar’s name, grade level, and a description of the problem. 
  10. Because the high school courses (as well as select MS courses) are credit bearing, and count towards graduation requirements, your scholar was enrolled as closely to their grade-level appropriate ASK schedule as possible. If the course is not completed and passed on time the scholar will be responsible for the credit and will have to make it up. Credit recovery fees range anywhere from $150-$300 per ½ credit depending on the program.

Stuck on a Problem?

Here are some suggestions:

 

  1. Reread or rewind.

Sometimes, you just need to read or see/hear something a second time. The nice thing about Edgenuity is that you can rewatch as much as you need.

  1. Google it.

Use a search engine to locate additional instruction or practice online. Just use the subject to help find resources. For example: Try searching: Why were rivers so important to settlements and civilizations? Or, How do I multiply polynomials, or When do I use I or me? The better your search the better your find.

  1. Check Khan Academy or YouTube.

These are good sources of additional video instruction; you may simply need something explained a different way. Just like your Google search, narrow it down and find what you need.

  1. Ask a Discussion Question in GC.

Post a question in your Edgenuity Google Classroom. Be sure to post it in the Discussion board for the relevant class subject.

Check the Discussion Questions in GC.

Read what is posted in your Edgenuity Google Classroom to see if your question has already been answered. Be sure to look in the Discussion board for the relevant class subject.

  1. Email to Request Help
High School: email kimpierce@theaskacademy.org
 

They will discuss what you have tried already, and help answer if they can. If they can’t they will direct your question to someone who can help.

 

This semester you will be following the Edgenuity online curriculum. The following guidelines will help you stay on pace and be successful managing the coursework.

FAQ’s

How do I change my password?

As long as student's have a valid email address associated with their account (which they should) they can reset their own password on the login page using the "Forgot Password" option beneath the login area.  It will send them an email to reset their password. 

Will I have a teacher?

Your lessons will be delivered by an online educator in a pre-recorded format. Some assignments may be graded by ASK project managers, but most assignments and tests will be generated and graded by the Edgenuity program.

How long are my Edgenuity classes?

Edgenuity courses are not structured like regular classes where you need to be in a certain room, at a certain time, for a certain amount of time. You will have access to your classes 24/7. However, the recommended time for each class is approximately 1 hour per day per class. That means that if you have 6 classes you should allot for 6 hours each day, or split it up including weekend work time to lessen the daily time. Edgenuity is designed around a 5 day school week, so make sure you stay on target.

How will I know how I am doing and if I am on pace? How will I know if I am passing?

You can see your grades at any time. The grade will show you how you have done on assignments, but also how your progress is going. Because the course will end December 15th, you will be able to see what percentage of the course you have completed and how much remains. Make sure that both your scores and completion rate are both good.

What if I don’t understand something in the course?

You can re-watch the lessons as many times as you need to. Edgenuity also has help features that are tied to the content. If that doesn’t help, you can go to the Google MS Classroom and use the support sites we have compiled. If the concept is still not clear, you can reach out to your project manager during support hours.

As a parent how can I monitor my scholar’s progress?

You will have access to the same progress reporting functions. One of the features will also tell you how much time your scholar is spending on their classes. This function will also account for active learning and idel time – that means that just logging into class is not the same as taking part in the lesson.
