Study.Com Pretests
#1
I’ve noticed posts mentioning Study.com has pretests. If you perform well on them, how does this help the process? Is it less questions and videos?

if you mean placement tests, then yes, it fills in parts of the courses for you and you dont have to take those parts

unfortunately they aren't available for all courses but for the ones that you can do them for, they save a ton of time, assuming you know the material. if you only sort of know it, then tbh they don't save that much time at all because the correct answers sort of chain together to clear sections of the course, so a right answer here or there won't help much.
Study.com - 159 CR. TESU - 27 CR. Middle Georgia State University - 15 CR. COSC - 6 CR. Excelsior - 6 CR. CLEP - 6 CR. Sophia - 14 CR. TEEX - 2 CR. Shmoop - 18 CR. NFA - 4 CR. The Institutes - 2 CR. FEMA - 20ish

I believe the chapter tests and practice final exams will also clear related quiz questions, so even if the particular course doesn't have a placement test, you can sometimes use those as alternate means to get the same end result.

Either way, I always recommend that folks take the chapter tests after they complete lessons. Not only does it help reinforce what you learned in those chapters, but it is also a great way to prep for the final exam. The practice final exam pulls its questions from the chapter exams so to me, taking all the chapter exams is like an extended practice exam. However, you can also take the practice final exam if you like.

I always wondered this, and maybe someone knows the definitive answer.

I remember completing 100% of the chapter quizzes and scoring 100% on all of them. Yet in the score box is said you scored 92/100 and because of this need 59% to pass the final.

If I scored 100% on all of the chapter quizzes, then how did I get a 92/100?

Only thing I can think of is I did a few pre-tests and did not score 100%, was I graded down for not bringing those up to 100%?

I'm done with study.com, but it is something I was curious about.

If you took more than three attempts to get to 100%, only your first three attempts can be considered in calculating your quiz grade. That could be why.

Nice, that would make sense as some of them I did bounce back and forth like a big dumb dumb.

Did not know about the 3 tries, thanks for that.

 On my first two Study.com courses I completely skipped the chapter tests since many of the questions are simply repeated from the graded quizzes that I've already completed. What I didn't realize until today when I tested this is that completing the chapter tests can clear out quizzes in subsequent lessons. Thanks so much for this tip!
