If I take a course, does that mean that I am a student at a University or School?
No, but you will be working on getting your course requirements completed for high school graduation and university foundation courses eligibility.
Do I get college credit for these classes?
No. These are not college courses. If you pass an exam, a college may give you credit, but that is up to each individual school, college or university.
Can I get a transcript?
No, Teaching Science does not provide transcripts, but we do provide grade reports if a student is taking a course in which we provide the teacher. Since the credit comes from the student’s school of record, not us, the grade report will be forwarded to the school, and the grade will be added to the school’s transcript. All scenarios that involve a grade or credit must be worked out with your student’s school prior to taking one of our courses for credit.
What are teacher responsibilities?
If you are going to be the Teacher of Record for a student taking a course for credit, you are required to do the following:
- Make sure student is keeping up with the course and assignments.
- Be available to answer questions for the student, or have someone or someplace to refer your student for answers.
- Administer exams.
- Grade assignments, quizzes, and assessments.
- Assign a final grade.
- **Teaching Science teachers hold the appropriate credentials, and Teaching Science strongly recommends that if a school is using their own teacher, that teacher also hold the appropriate credentials.
