The Student Experience
Power Homeschool delivers courses to students through the Acellus® Learning System. After signing in, your student will see a list of the courses you have selected. When they select a course, the system will take them right to their current position in the class, and will automatically mark their attendance.
Students can see their progress and score for each class from the student interface. Courses are accessed online, allowing students to work wherever they have Internet connectivity.
Each student is provided with a user name and password. From the dashboard, the student may select a class to work in. Once the student selects a class, they are immediately taken to their current position within the course.
Each lesson begins with a short video lesson taught by a teacher who is an expert in their field. This video-based instruction allows students to learn independently, which can greatly leverage the time of a parent.
Immediately after a video lesson, students receive practice problems to apply the concept presented in the lesson. Acellus requires students to master the concept before moving to the next lesson.
Extra Help Videos and Resources
For students who did not grasp the concept after watching the initial video lesson, additional more in-depth videos are presented. Other help resources including the Lesson Manual and Help Videos are also available.
Reviews & Exams
At the conclusion of each unit, students take a review which is followed by an exam. During the review, students have the opportunity to review videos and help resources from lessons within the unit.
Goals & Progress
Parents may specify weekly goals to help students stay on-pace with completing each course. Students may review their progress toward meeting these goals within the student interface.
