To differentiate students with varying levels of rigor in their course load, counselors can ask to enable the Rigor feature.
Once Rigor is enabled, College Kickstart will consider the rigor score in students’ College Plans.
Counselors can select one of the following settings:
- AP Honors: Will indicate the number of honors and AP courses the student has taken.
- Rigor Index: A 1 to 5 point grade scale which the student obtained.
Once enabled, counselors will be able to add the Rigor score in the student profile:
Once a plan is run, Rigor will be shown in the Academic Performance Assessment section of the Details Tab.
What Requirements do I need to enable Rigor?
- School must be using an unweighted GPA.
- School will also be required to upload historical data.
