Just like a traditional school, there are reading and writing assignments, projects, quizzes and, yes, tests. But unlike traditional schools, everything you need to study for those assignments is always available 24/7, from the very first day of class. There are also online extras like video simulations, discussion boards, blogs and wikis. That way you can learn largely at your pace, where and when it works for you.
Of course, there are still school deadlines. We've found that due dates help students stay on track and avoid end-of-the-quarter cramming and stress. These target dates may be somewhat flexible; together, you and your teacher will find the schedule that works best. Juniors and Seniors will have more specific and rigid deadlines.
