Add a field that allows us to weigh Dual Enr courses with 5.0 weight
We need to weigh our Dual Enrollment College courses for a weight GPA of 5.0, without making the Dual Enrollment course an AP course.
Currently our AP courses are also weighted 5.0
There is only one field to tag our AP courses so that it is weighed 5.0, but it is the same field that is used to tag the course as a dual enrollment course.
We would like a field added that weighs a course 5.0 but does not signify that the course is an AP.
Requesting that an extra field or option be added to weigh courses without making the course an AP or an honors course.
This is critical as our board has already approved the 5.0 credits for some dual enrollment courses.
We should not be having to "vote" to elevate this enhancement request. I know our admin will be extremely displeased to learn of this and may start looking for another SIS. Please pass this article along.
Many high schools will weigh college-level courses with an extra point. Even if a high school doesn’t, a college or university might. UC will award an extra point up to eight courses for AP, IB or dual enrollment courses. CSU will do the same.
