    Default Study.com course how it works?

    Hi.
    So I got the guardian scholarship to study.com. I'm working on the personal finance course first, because I can't move on until that's taken care of. It has 87 lessons and 87 lesson quizzes. Do I have to do every quiz? Or can I just take the final and move on?

    Oh and also.. Does the final exam have to be 70% or more? Or does the final grade have to be 70% or more?

    Thank you.

    You do have to take all of the quizzes, they count towards your final grade, so I would make sure to get 100% on all the quizzes. You need to get 70% for the course. For Personal Finance, if you complete all the quizzes with 100% then you only need a 55 On the final exam to pass.

    Some courses have assignments or projects, so your final exam score needs will vary depending on how many points those courses require.

    After taking 6 courses from Study. I would argue against this. Getting 100 on all exams can drag on. Getting a mix of 80% and 100% on the quizzes and taking the final exam afterwards, and determining if you need to go back and redo quizzes worked best for me.

    Example: Penguin class required 100 quizzes at 5 question each 100 x 5 = 500 (overall points for quizzes) I know that 40 of the quizzes I got 4-5 (80%), so I take away 40 from 500 = 460; that is 92% for overall total of quizzes. 92/100. Itook the exam and scored 60% giving me 60/100 = 92(quiz total)+ 60(final exam) = 152, so now 100 points overall for quizzes and final exam = 152/ 200 gives me 76%.

    Add a project in there and it can be even less.


    (If I butchered that Math call me out please, but that is how I went about it.)

    A lot of the classes I breezed through 50+ exams in a night doing this method vs spending all that time trying to get 100% on each and every exam. Which I did for my earlier courses. After taking a few finals and realizing that I was doing above 70% on the finals I stopped caring about getting 100% on everything.

    If I am confident that I know the material I do not bother with the videos or reading the lesson material.

    I wish they would implement that you could go straight to test if you can achieve 80% you can automatically get credit for the class. Towards the last couple of classes doing the quizzes got so draining. Especially when you think back and you have done hundreds and hundreds of quizzes.

    Wait... After finishing the final, you can go back to the quizzes to pad your score if you haven't already hit 100% on the quizzes?

    I agree that taking all of the quizzes is extremely draining, especially for the longer ones.

    I just do it as a precaution. I took Principles of Finance last night, scored in the 90's for both practice exams I took but ended up getting exactly 55 questions right on the final. The real final seemed to be more difficult x__x

    You are able to resubmit for the projects after taking the final, so I guess you can for the quizzes also? I just do 100% every time because you have to get 80% to pass the quiz so I just "ctrl F" the main term in the question I missed and find the answer quickly. It takes an extra minute or two tops. Also, it really bothers me if I see 4/5 on some of the quizzes in my dashboard for the course. Lame...I know.

    You're not the first person I know of who has had trouble with that course.
