Successful Strategies for Providing Online Credit Recovery in Montana
Frazelle, Sarah
Regional Educational Laboratory Northwest
This report examines common strategies used by six Montana schools that had high student passing rates in online credit recovery courses offered by the Montana Digital Academy (MTDA) in the 2013/14 school year. The study is based on analysis of interviews conducted with school-based facilitators who oversee the implementation of the online MTDA credit recovery program at their schools. The facilitators were asked to describe how their schools had implemented the MTDA program and to reflect on specific strategies that may have contributed to high student passing rates. The report includes an overview of the increasing prevalence of online credit recovery programs, particularly in rural schools and districts, a description of the MTDA program, an overview of the key findings drawn from the interviews, and a discussion of common challenges associated with online credit recovery. It concludes with a summary of the study's limitations and suggestions for further research. Study methodology is appended.
