FLVS Class of 2021: Opening New Doors

​​​​FLVS Class of 2021: Opening New Doors

Our lives are made up of classrooms, mathematical equations, and history lessons, with memories, hardships, and friendships woven in between until we turn 18. It’s a predetermined notion that the minute the clock strikes twelve on graduation day, you’re forced to push open two dense, heavyset doors into what we call “the real world.”

Caps and tassels fly through the air, loved ones excitedly cheer from the audience, students instantly bond over the once-in-a-lifetime moment where they get to celebrate a decade of growing and learning and turn the page on their future.

Behind them are years of notes and assignments, memories from student clubs and activities, and plenty of Zoom calls. Ahead of them is the opportunity to shape their future. And for FLVS Class of 2021 graduate Madeleine (Maddy) Phinney, it’s an opportunity to build a life for herself and her one-year-old daughter.

REL Report: Teacher Influence on Student Success in an Online Biology Course

A REL study focused on the Florida Virtual School.

 Institute of Education Sciences

REL Report: Teacher Influence on Student Success in an Online Biology Course

Florida Virtual School administrators have been studying ways to improve student performance by identifying successful instructional practices. Their goal is to identify teachers with effective practices that other teachers might incorporate into their instruction.

As part of that initiative, REL Southeast conducted a study of teacher influences on student outcomes. The study examined three student outcomes for segment 1 (equivalent to a semester in an in-person school) of an asynchronous biology course offered by Florida Virtual School: the segment completion rate, score on the end-of-segment exam, and time taken to complete the segment. Student end-of-segment exam scores varied only slightly across teachers, teachers had somewhat more influence on segment completion rates, and teachers had the greatest influence on time to completion. As a result, students with the highest- and lowest-ranked teachers had notable differences in their time to completion and minor differences in completion rates and exam scores.
