Frequently Asked Questions:
For initial credit courses, the answer is 5–10%, depending on the course. Essays are supported by an auto-scoring engine that suggests a grade based on structure and grammar, but teachers must review and accept/modify the score before it shows for students. If a district wants to reduce the amount of teacher grading, they can customize projects, performance tasks, and lab reports out of the course. They can also enable completion grading, which will remove the requirement that teachers review essays before the score shows for students, but we do not recommend this for credit-bearing courses. Credit recovery courses have little to no teacher grading.
Project-based CTE courses and AP® courses both require significantly more teacher grading. More than half of the activities could be teacher graded for project-based electives. For AP courses, roughly 25% of the activities are teacher graded. AP courses also require teachers to facilitate online discussions through Collaboration Corner.
