Easy online credits
#1
Does anybody know of any regionally accreditated online colleges have open book exams, non proctored exams, or courses where most of the work is not in exam format. I get bad test anxiety and do much better when I can do assignments rather than tests. Thanks!

I would recommend any of the straighter-line courses https://www.straighterline.com/how-it-wo...g-details/ that list will tell you whether they are open book or not. Most of their courses are ACE certified which means they will transfer to a regionally accredited college or university but it's always best to check with the university or college.

If you need Math https://www.aleks.com/ would work to transfer math class's.

When it comes to an easy college I'm really not sure. I'm more familiar with the ACE credits I listed above then a specific college.

This might be helpful as well. https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Degree_Forum_Wiki

as a "college" no, but for sure there are courses within any college that would fit your criteria- the problem with the ask, is that the instructor has a lot of freedom to deliver and evaluate content how they like. So, if you hear that ABC Class with Mr. Smith has only 1 test and it's open book, when Mr. Jones teaches it, he flips it to a dozen closed book quizzes. So, finding a RA college where ALL the courses are tightly scripted will be tough.

Have you picked a college for your degree?? If not, choose one that allows ACE credit - that will solve all of your problems. (See Life-one's post)

You can choose a college that's known for writing papers rather than having tests.

But I agree with Jennifer that if you choose one of the Big 3, and then do all of your courses through alternative methods like we use here, then you can get an RA degree.

Most (all?) colleges will have a disabled services center where people who have various disabilities, including acute anxiety, can get accommodations to help with their classes. A common one is taking exams in a quiet environment and with extra time. You would likely have to get an anxiety diagnosis. On the flip side, a professional might be able to help you manage your anxiety better.

What colleges are known more for their papers than tests?

It's as easy for you to search for that as me.  I just know that they exist, but I couldn't name them.  Sorry.

My son took 2 classes through CSU Pueblo Independent Study that had all papers and no tests at all.  The classes are reasonably priced and it was a good experience for him, overall.  The ENG 130 class had 13 papers, though.  However, 10 of them were 2 page essays.  By the end of that class, he was very weary of writing.  The PSY 205 class had 4 papers, which is much more doable.  He was able to get A's in both classes, if that is helpful.  They tell you which classes have exams.(The ones where a proctor is required) and you can look at the syllabus before you enroll.  The cost is $555 per 3 hour course.
