Expected Course Progress
Students who enroll with NDCDE in online courses are expected to follow their online assignment calendar (pacing chart) or teacher-provided calendar for their course(s). Students who enroll with NDCDE in print courses are expected to work through and complete assignments at a pace that allows for timely completion and adequate teacher feedback. Students are expected to stay on pace by completing their assignments throughout the duration of their course(s). To do so, students should expect to engage in 1-2 hours of work per day, per course. Students who do not stay on pace will be notified via multiple means by NDCDE.
- Online Courses: Students who do not submit at least one assignment during the first two weeks of a course will be dropped from the course, and their course enrollment fee will be returned, less $20 for administrative processing. Prior to enrolling in any other NDCDE course, students who have been dropped as a result of this policy will be required to complete an online Readiness Assessment prior to their admission.
- Print Courses: Students who do not submit at least one assignment during the first four weeks of a course will be dropped from the course, and their course enrollment fee will be returned, less $20 for administrative processing. Please note: the course enrollment fee will only be returned once NDCDE has received all materials that accompanied the course including books, study guides, tests, and any other course material or supplies that were shipped.
