Unlike other credit recovery courses, Fuel Education has built courses from the ground up to support learners who may need additional motivation and remediation. We have created a motivational, self‐paced learning environment with embedded social‐emotional learning support, and growth‐mindset approach to help students reframe their struggles as opportunities for future success.
FuelEd’s Credit Recovery courses are designed for students who did not pass a course initially but learned enough to make a complete repetition of the course unnecessary. With our diagnostic‐driven model, students can test out of the material they previously mastered in a course so they can focus on the more difficult concepts they missed the first time around.
