TRECA Summer School

Program Guide


Curriculum

Edmentum’s PLE courseware is online mastery-based curriculum. Most modules contain a tutorial, an application, and a mastery test. Students will work through and gain knowledge about the lesson through the tutorial. They will practice the skill through the application. Then, they will complete the mastery test. Students must score at least 80% to pass each mastery test. If the minimum score is not earned, the mastery test will lock. The student will review the tutorial and practice the application. After reviewing, the mastery test will unlock for the student to take again. We recommend that students take their time and go through all parts of the module (lesson) before taking the mastery test initially.

In order to earn credit, students must:

  • Complete all assignments
  • Score an 80% or above on all mastery tests
  • Complete all post-tests 
  • Complete the end of semester test

Grading Scale

In order to earn credit, students must meet all course requirements by the deadline. For more specific information about the requirements for the course(s) you are taking, please refer to the course syllabi found in the Summer School Course Catalog.

  • A = 90-100%
  • B = 80-89%
  • C = 70-79%
  • D = 60-69% (or 0-69% on post tests and end of semester tests)
  • I = Incomplete (course requirements have not been met)

There are no + or – grades issued. At the end of the program, TRECA 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

TRECA 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.
