- Credit Recovery content is course-specific content. Design is highly dependent on the standards, the discipline area, and the pedagogy surrounding the online delivery of the content.
- Assessment questions are aligned and tagged at the learning objective level, and students are assessed at the learning objective level. Learning objectives collectively meet the standards.
- The Credit Recovery courses are intended to be an abbreviated experience as students should already have some functional understanding of the content.
- Students will be able to meet performance expectations via the coursework presented to them along with support and feedback from their teacher.

- The first lesson in a topic folder contains a Pre-Test that students must take. If students master specific learning objectives on the Pre-Test, they may be excused from that content moving forward.
- Students are required to take all Assess Its that have not been excused based on their achievement on the Pre-Tests. They must be taken in chronological order.
- The last lesson within a topic folder contains a Post-Test for that topic. Students must take the Post-Test and pass a certain threshold to move on.
- Pre-Tests do not factor into a student’s final grade. Only Post-Test Assess Its are submitted for grading. Students can contact their teacher with any questions regarding course content, assignments, and assessment feedback.
- If a threshold is set, students must reach the passing score or higher. Clients can choose the threshold score and the number of retries. If a student uses an LLS teacher, the Post-Test threshold is set at 60%, and students have unlimited retries on all Post-Tests.

Q: What is the difference between Credit Recovery and Remediation?
A: Credit Recovery courses are designed to provide students with a guided focus on content that they have not necessarily mastered. Credit Recovery courses only include content from the target course. Remediation courses are designated to remediate specific concepts or commonly tested state-standard ideas. They may include content from multiple courses.
Q: What is the difference between Credit Recovery and Auto-Graded?
A: Credit Recovery courses are designed to provide students with a guided focus on content that they have not necessarily mastered. Auto-Graded courses are designed to transition students who may or may not have experienced the course and its content. Only auto-graded assignments are included in the Auto-Graded courses.
