Self-Paced, Independent Study
With UNHS courses, students may enroll at any time and may complete courses as quickly as 5 weeks from the first submitted assignment, or may take up to 52 weeks to complete.
Each UNHS course is presented in units and lessons that may include:
- Teacher Connect Activities
- Unit Evaluations
- Progress Tests
How Courses Work
Following enrollment, students receive an email with their username and password for WayCool. Through WayCool, students access their online course content, assessments, grades and instructor feedback.
Courses include graded and non-graded assignments. Students must submit all graded assignments, and should complete all non-graded assignments to effectively learn the content and prepare for graded evaluations and progress tests.
Assignments are submitted through WayCool, although some larger files may also require the use of the UNHS DropBox.
UNHS course assignments must be submitted in the order presented. No more than one assignment per day per course can be submitted.

Completing Unit Evaluations
Unit evaluations are open book with no time limits. These assessments are designed to provide students feedback on their mastery of material as they prepare for progress tests. Unit evaluations contain multiple-choice, true/false, or matching questions.
Evaluations are submitted through the online learning platform, which provides immediate grading and feedback.
Projects are open book with no time limits. Projects allow students to personalize and extend their learning as they present their understanding of the course content in written form. Projects are submitted through the online learning platform to UNHS teachers for grading and feedback.
Taking Progress Tests
Progress tests are closed-book exams and may include multiple-choice or true/false questions. In general, they cover content from several units.
Progress tests must be administered by an approved proctor. They are submitted through the online learning platform.
Core and elective courses use a standard four-point grading scale. Advanced Placement courses use a five-point grading scale.
|Letter Grade||Percent Scale||Grade Scale||AP Grade Scale|
|F||69 or lower||0.0||0.0|
