Apex Data Dive
If you haven't met with me to discuss last year's Apex Data, please do so before the end of July. We will be looking at last year's Apex Completion rates as well as completion compliance in preparation for the new year.

Apex Certification
The following schools have been Apex Certified. If you haven't scheduled an appointment with me for this quick assessment, please contact me ASAP. You must have your lab/cart certified to implement Apex at your school site.
  • Animo Oscar de La Hoya
  • Animo Inglewood
Changes to Apex Grading and Completion Requirements
Minimum student completion requirements are as follows:
  • >80% Completion Progress (How much of the course the student has completed so far)
  • >70% Overall Percent (What the student's grade is so far as a percentage of total points available in the course)
  • >70% Quality of Work (What the student's grade is based on the number of points attempted) 
  • >70% Grade to Date (What the student's grade is for non-overdue assignments)
  • >30 hours or 5 weeks Time in Program
This is a correction from what was communicated at training: Completion Progress IS NOT Overall Percent.

Overall Percent, Quality of Work, Grade to Date appear in a teacher's gradebook or student progress report:

Completion Progress appears in the course dropdowns on the main dashboard landing page


If you have any questions about Apex Grading, don't hesitate to reach out to me: 818.350.2449.
