InstantCert Credit courses
#1
My dd wants to share this:

Hello, I just want to share my experience with InstantCert Credit.  I took American Government, Environmental Sciences, and Astronomy.  I'm planning on using these for my general ed, either TESU or Excelsior.  In my opinion the classes were challenging.  But I expect that for a college-material class, since I am only a home-schooled high school student.  I took only one course at a time, it took me about a week to get it done.  The quizzes were easy.  The exams were challenging.  I wish I would have been able to see what questions I did wrong in the exams.  My overall experience was okay.

I’m about 98% complete with Astronomy and the course has been a little difficult. There are grammatical errors on some of the questions and the answers don’t always match what you have studied in the lessons, but all-in-all it’s been a fairly good course.

Oh, the exams don't show wrong answers? For the Introduction to Financial Accounting course's first exam, most of the questions were largely similar to previous study questions, but if it's true that incorrectly answering things doesn't provide any reasoning why like the study questions do, that seems like a missed learning opportunity.

It’s true that they don’t show you what you missed out on, so it’s hard to figure out what you did and didn’t do incorrectly.
