Purdue Global Assessment of Skills and Knowledge

Note: Sorry for the weird format.

So it would be interesting to explore this some more. My first question is whether this resets a student's enrollment at Purdue. Could a person just keep taking these exams rather than taking actual courses? Could these make up an entire degree, creating a de facto competency-based pathway?

Note: I also see seven 500 level assessments. If these turned into 3 graduate credit hours each at Purdue Global for $700, that would be a pretty good deal.
University of Michigan, 1997, BA Ed.; Teaching Cert.: English/Social Sciences
Marygrove College, 2003, MAT: Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
TESU, 2018, BSBA: Accounting/CIS; ASNSM: Math/Comp. Sci.; Certs: Finance, Org. Lead., Ops. Man., Marketing
University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, 2018, Grad. Cert.: Economics Ed.; 18 Grad. Credits - Economics
Harvard University Extension, 2019, Poetry in America Series; 20 Grad. Credits - English
Don't you have to be an active Purdue student to be able to access these exams? That is, taking at least one Purdue class?
In progress:
Pierpont - AAS BOG
TESU - BA Computer Science

Sophia (30 courses), The Institutes (old), (5 courses)
ASU: Human Origins, Astronomy, Intro Health & Wellness, Western Civilization, Computer Appls & Info Technology, Intro Programming
A couple of things to note:
1) you need an 80% on each section of the exams, and an 80% overall to pass. That's pretty rough.
2) many of the exams give you writing assignments, and you have 28 days to turn each one in.
