Online Credit Recovery is an option for students who have failed a course or for those who passed a Regents level course but failed the Regents and need to review. Students are registered in a self-paced online course facilitated by a NYS certified teacher for that subject area. This option allows students to identify areas of weakness and concentrate on those, rather than retake the entire course. A typical course has the student take a unit pre-test, then depending on the score, work on selected elements of that unit or move on to the next unit pretest.
Schools that offer credit recovery must have a committee consisting of an administrator, guidance counselor, and teacher to oversee the program. The program is most successful in schools where the student is assigned to a lab, with a mentor who assures that the student makes regular progress in the course.
