In this program, students can enroll in single courses through META iCredit while remaining enrolled in their local school. This program has assisted many students with making up credits, alleviating scheduling conflicts, gaining experience taking an online course, and more. We offer a variety of online courses. This program is available to students in grades 9-12, who are enrolled full-time in a brick-and-mortar school in Ohio. We accept enrollment into the program at any time, and then each student has 52 weeks from his/her individual enrollment date to complete the course(s); however, coursework is flexible and can be finished as quickly as the student chooses.

Curriculum

The courses, designed to prepare students for college, contain a variety of deliverables, including tests, papers, discussions, and more. Each full year (1 credit) course is divided into 12 blocks, and each block is designed to take about 3 weeks to complete; however, because the coursework is entirely online and always available, students can work through the course at their own pace. We allow up to 52 weeks from the student’s enrollment date to complete the course(s). Our course offerings are divided into semesters. If the student is taking one semester (.5 credit) course only, the student will see and complete 6 blocks of work.

Grading Scale

Each course contains a Course Overview, which will explain the grading procedures for the course. The gradebook (Grades tab) will contain an assignment list for all blocks the student is in. Students must finish all assignments in the course to earn credit. If all assignments are not complete, the grade on the transcript will be an I, meaning incomplete, with 0 credits earned. All assignments listed in the gradebook are factored into the final grade. Tests labeled “mastery test” require an 80% or higher in order to be marked as complete; the grade in your gradebook for “mastery tests” will show as 0% until the test is completed. Once complete, the score will be updated to 100% completion credit.

  • A = 90-100%
  • B = 80-89%
  • C = 70-79%
  • D = 60-69%
  • I = Incomplete (final grade for courses that are not entirely complete)

There are no + or – grades issued. At the end of the program, META will send a transcript to your counselor that includes the course name, final score and letter grade, and credit earned. The counselor will decide what data is recorded on your local school transcript.

Plagiarism Policy

META takes plagiarism very seriously. What is plagiarism? Simply put, it is taking the words or ideas or another person and passing them off as your own – that is, you have failed to "cite," or name, the source from which you collected your information. In plain words, you are copying. Plagiarism may result in being asked to redo the assignment, receiving a 0 for the assignment, or not receiving course credit. Please be sure that all work you submit is your own original work or that it is properly cited.
