Is it possible to submit a blank page to Sophia
#1
Does anyone know if this is possible for Ancient Greek Philosophers on Sophia? I want it off my dashboard to finish other classes but i already have an 89% and dont care to write the essay. If i have to ill do the bare minimum but its holding me up from other classes I should have completed instead of this one.

You need 50% score in the touchstone to pass the course. You can summit it but theoretically you cannot pass the course.
Do the paper, get the 50% and is the quicker way.

It will be returned ungraded if you don't meet the requirements. It's a short essay, only needs to be 3 to 4 pages. Better off just finishing it or dropping the class.

There is no minimum score required on touchstones, but it is necessary to complete along with an overall average of 70%.

I have not yet attempted to submit a touchstone the same way that it is possible to submit an "I'm accepting a zero for this assignment as I have enough points." doc via SDC. So I may do that for fun with this Business Law since you're allowed 1 redo attempt per touchstone.

From Sophia Student guide: "Complete each Touchstone with a score of at least 50%.
"
From student guide with more perspective of all requirements:

"HOW IT WORKS
To earn a Sophia transcript, you must:
• Complete each Challenge by attempting each of the questions.
• Achieve a total average score of 70% or better across all Challenges, Milestones, and Touchstones.
• Complete each Touchstone with a score of at least 50%.
• Complete your Final Milestone, which contributes to your overall course score.
"
Unless I understand it wrong it requires, at least in theory, a 50% in the touchstone. Check the Rubric to be sure you get the 50%.

No minimum required for the touchstones:

Quote:While there is no minimum required score on an individual Touchstone, keep in mind that you must complete each Touchstone as well as achieve an average score of 70% across all assessments to pass the course. You will be given one opportunity to redo each Touchstone if necessary to improve your score.

In short, I would get it done ASAP by following the rubric to get a 'complete' grade... You don't want to let this easy course credit go, I think it's just one assignment. When you submit the assignment, you can ask to have a third class open... It's usually best to have one class with touchstones, and one class without, so you can speed through that class without the touchstone.

I don't know when they changed the policy, but it used to be if you failed a milestone, you had to retake it.  I had to retake the 5th stats milestone. 

While there is no minimum required score on an individual Milestone, keep in mind that you need to achieve an average score of 70% across all Challenges and Milestones.
