MOCC: Add Student Performance Information

Introduction:

The State School Aid Act requires districts or Independent School Districts (ISD) who offered an online course through Section 21f to provide Michigan Virtual with:

  1. the number of enrollments in each online course the district or ISD offered to pupils in the immediately preceding school year, and
  2. the number of enrollments in which the pupil earned 60% or more of the total course points for each online course.

This document describes how to record the required information within Michigan’s Online Course Catalog.

Details:

  1. First, tap Courses in the top menu.
  2. Next, click Edit in the far right column next to the appropriate course title.
    The Courses page is shown with search fields and results table. Arrows point to the courses menu option and to the edit button next to the course title.
  3. At this point, tap the Performance Data option on the left menu.
    Image of Editing Course page showing the Performance Data option selected. Performance data listed in table containing year, enrollment, passed, completion percentage and notes.

    • To add, tap the Add Performance Data button.
    • To modify an existing entry, tap Edit to the left of the school year.
    • To remove an existing entry, tap Edit to the left of the school year and then press the Destroy button.
      The Editing Performance Data page is shown with information on the 19-20 school year. This image shows the save and destroy options.
      Note: For the Enrollment Count enter the number of students who were enrolled in the course for which an 80% enrollment payment was kept, within the Enrollment Count field. If the course was offered during the preceding year, but there were no enrollments, please enter the number “0”. Then type the number of enrollments in the course in which the pupil earned 60% or more of the total course points inside the Pass Count field. If the course was offered during the preceding year, but there were no enrollments, please enter the number “0”.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
