In order to have the CEUs in PD Express post to a transcript you must complete the activity.
That means that the activity status goes from Approved to Completed.
1. There are several options for completing an activity.
- Open the approved activity and type your Reflection (in the Comments section).
- Open the approved activity and attach an electronic version of your Reflection. You may also attach notes, agendas, certificates of attendance, and/or any other options for evidence of learning (see below).
2. Print out a list of all your approved activities. You’ll want to give this list to your building administrator so they know which activities are ready tor review. After reviewing, they will change the activity status from Approved to Completed.
3. When all of your activities have been completed, you can print out a transcript. Just click on My Pages, then Out of District PD and then you will see the Transcript button on the top right of your screen.
