WebXam Retake

WebXam end-of-course assessments may be retaken in the same school year by graduating students after allowing for additional instruction time. This enhances opportunities for students to demonstrate technical skills attainment for the purpose of graduation and report cards. The policy for WebXam same-year retakes includes:

  • Graduating students may retake most WebXam tests once in their final school year
  • A retake must be scheduled at least 30 days after the original assessment was performed
  • Field tests may not be retaken due to the length of the tests and earlier closing of the field test window

Students that are not graduating in the current school year may take an end-of-course test once per academic school year (each school year begins July 1 and ends June 30). These students cannot retake a test within a single school year. Students do not have to retake the course, but can participate in remediation and then retake the test the following year.
NEW Leadership Academy Pilot Opportunity Starting in February 2022 

In partnership with FranklinCovey, FCCLA is launching a unique pilot program for a limited number of members utilizing an interactive learning management system. FranklinCovey Leader in Me® materials offer self-paced, on demand courses that can be used as leader-led trainings or as standalone learning options. The Leader in Me® learning platform’s Student Leadership Courses provide members with in-depth training on the life-readiness skills that will benefit them as members and throughout their life.

FCCLA will require members participating in the Leadership Academy to begin with the Life Readiness course, Leading Your Life, as it takes students through an in-depth look into the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and is the foundation of all the courses. The additional courses within the platform will be available at a future date as we continue the Leadership Academy program. To learn more about each of these courses, please visit the website.

The cost of the course is $45 per member. Click here for information.
