Students in Connecticut can take online courses this summer to catch up on core subjects by working independently at their own pace under the guidance of a teacher. Diagnostic tests will help determine what material students still need to master, tailoring courses to meet those needs and expediting credit recovery for students. "The biggest benefit will be that students who are struggling can get more help and students who can go more quickly are not bogged down by those who need more help," one district's technology director said.
