If a comparison cohort of six or more students can be established, then a GPA comparison can be computed within the Graduation Alternatives Application.
The GPA comparison calculation computes the target student’s GPA in the two credits of coursework used in the cohort establishment. It also computes the mean GPA of all cohort students in the same two credits of coursework.
- If the target student’s GPA in the 2.0 course credits is greater than or equal to the mean GPA of the comparison cohort, then the GPA comparison is successful, and can fulfill the assessment graduation requirement for the respective content area.
- If the target student’s GPA in the courses is less than that of the cohort, the GPA comparison is not successful.
A successful GPA comparison can be submitted for approval within the Graduation Alternatives Application.
