Guide to Understanding the Graduation Progress Page Quick Reference Guide  December 21, 2011
The Graduation Progress page is a snapshot of a student’s progress towards acquiring the credits needed for graduation. A student in Nova Scotia may earn one of the following diplomas:
NS High School Graduation Diploma English or French Adult High School Diploma IB Diploma (IB Graduates automatically receive the NS High School Graduation Diploma)
A student may also, in addition to the above diplomas, earn one of the following certificates:
French Immersion Integrated French Options and Opportunities (O2)
For a full list of requirements to receive any of the above diplomas or certificates, please refer to the iNSchool Quick Reference Guide – Graduation Requirements.
From the Student-Parent Portal click on the link to open Grade History; in the next screen, click on the link to view the Graduation Plan Progress page.
You will be presented with a “real time” view of the graduation progress the student.
The progress page is divided in to several columns.
Graduation Contracts: This section lists the diploma or the certificate the student is working toward and the grade level requirements. The Graduation Contracts section is divided into several columns as listed below; a white row indicates a different Graduation Contract.

Subject Group: Relates to the specific contract that is listed. Students must earn a required number of credits by taking courses that fall under these subject groups.
Earned: as the student successfully completes a course under a particular subject group, the course is listed and the number of credits associated with that course is printed.
Enrolled: This column shows the courses the student has enrolled in but not completed, the number next to this course is the number of credits that will be earned when the course is successfully completed.
Requested: This column shows any courses the student has requested for next year, and the number next to this course is the number of credits that will be earned when the course is successfully completed.
Required: This shows the number of credits this subject area requires for graduation. The only exception will be in the number for grade 10, 11 or 12 course requirements. (see page 5) This arbitrary number is very Fi ure 1 high to ensure all courses will be listed.
Progress: This color coded bar displays the progress of the student toward the required number of credits for each subject area.
Dark Green represents the credits earned Light Green represents the number of credits for the courses the student is currently enrolled in Yellow represents the number of credits for the courses the student has requested White shows the number of credits left to be earned. However, in the section for grade levels 10,11, and 12 not all 20 credits are required, the requirements are listed next to the grade level.
The requirements count is intentionally set high (20) so that all courses will be listed. Our sample student (Figure 1) is working toward a NS High School Diploma in English and a French Immersion Certificate. Figure 1 shows only the progress for the NS High School diploma.

TheSubject Group(the top white row) displays the contract the student is working toward; NS HS Diploma (English), as well as, the student has earned 12 credits of the 18 required and is currently enrolled in 6 courses.
The next row shows theSubject GroupThe student hasof “Language Communication and Expression”. earned 3 credits, one for completing English 10, one for completing English 11 and one for completing Art Dramatique; the student is enrolled in 1 course for English 12 and upon successful completion will have all four of the required credits.
The nextSubject Groupis “Science, Mathematics and Technology”, where we see the student has 5 of the required 6 courses and is enrolled in 1 course.
For a quick snap shot you can click on the words,NS HS Diploma (English) -Figure 2. If you want to know the actual courses used to satisfy any of the subject areas, simply click on the blue words, e.g.,Approved Science(Figure 3). When you see words on a screen in blue, they are a ‘hot link’; when you click on the link, a popup window appears.

Our sample student is also working toward a French Immersion Certificate; (the next contract on the next row in white). Again, you can click on the words,Certificate-French Immersionto get a pop up window for a quick snapshot of what courses were used in the totals for the requirements.

Students can only count a maximum of 7 credits at the grade 10 level and must have a minimum of 5 credits at the grade 12 level.

For example in grade 10 a student may earn 8 credits but only 7 will be counted toward graduation.
The requirements and progress for grades 10, 11 and 12 may also appear on the Graduation Progress page as we see in Figure 4. Remember, the only credits that show on the Graduation Progress page are those credits that count towards meeting the requirements of the specific contract, either a Diploma or a Certificate. The information on Graduation Progress page assumes successful completion of all the courses listed.
In grades 10,11,12 the requirement for credits is set to 20, so that all the courses taken will appear on the page, not just the courses that will count toward a particular contract.

The Graduation Progress page offers both students and parents a real-time view of your path to graduating! If you need any further help understanding the information presented on this page, please speak with your guidance counsellor at your school.

The order in which these rows appear is set by the school; you may see the certificate first or you may see the progress and requirements for the grades in a different order from our sample student. The column headings are always the same and how you read the page is the same; only the order may be different.
