WORKING ON AND SUBMITTING LESSONS
Submitting TWO lessons per week per course is strongly recommended. Complete all lessons in the order assigned. Every assignment must be done completely and thoroughly. Avoid one word, one sentence answers unless that is asked for.
LITERACY – all courses in ALL subject areas (including Math!) will incorporate a percentage of each lesson and exam for literacy (spelling, grammar, etc.).
If you are unable to do a question or section, we encourage you to see one of our Tutors. Markers will return incomplete lessons UNMARKED.
Think your lesson is finished? Please submit your lesson online through the D2L platform. If you want to make sure you have completed it properly, please contact your instructor or virtual tutor first. The Correspondence Administrative Assistant can connect you with the correct person if you are unsure: Trudy.Banker@wcdsb.ca
Please give our markers 5-7 business days from the time of submission to mark your lessons. If you wish to do more than two lessons per week, you can contact the Program Manager, Alan.Arnott@wcdsb.ca or Administrative Assistant with your request. Remember if you do two (2) lessons per week you can be done in approximately 12 weeks.
RECEIVING RESULTS FOR GRADED LESSONS
Teachers/markers will provide some feedback along with your grade for that lesson. Feedback can be found under your Assignments Tab. Click on the work “UNREAD” and it will open your feedback. Remember, it is a student’s responsibility to check their feedback. This will help you with future assignments.
Comments could be used as a guide for future lessons. Incomplete lessons will remain UNMARKED.
Is the grade on your lesson not what you expected?
Keep moving forward. Ask for help from a Correspondence Tutor. LESSON REPEATS are NOT permitted.
FINAL MARKS for most Correspondence courses will consist of a 70% weighting for lessons and 30% weighting for the summative assignments and exam(s).
Some courses may not have a midterm; therefore the final is weighted at 30%.
See the student information sheet (SIS) that is provided with your first set of lessons for details.
