Study.com Placement exam
#1
Just wanted to give everybody a heads up that Study.com has placement exams on some of the courses they offer. I took one last night on Business 109: Intro to computing and progressed my course work by 5% just by taking a 30 question quiz. This can definitely save some time if you have prior knowledge of a subject. Thank you study.com!

We are so glad to hear that you are enjoying our new placement exams. Just to let everyone know, this is currently a beta feature only available to a small sample of users. So if you can't find them, that's why! We are hoping to roll out placement exams to more users soon though, so stay tuned Smile.

Please feel free to pass along any feedback you have on the feature as well!

I guess I'm one of the small sample of users! Love these placement exams! I took one before starting the HRM course and I had already finished the course for 35%! Love it!

Just a question, since we don't have to take the lesson quizzes anymore, how does that factor in for the 50 points we can earn for the end result?

Great question! Any lesson and corresponding quiz you test out of will automatically count towards your participation score. We hope you keep enjoying placement tests!

I have only been able to take the placement test on like two or three courses. None of the others have had the option. The only one I specifically remember was Earth Science having the placement. I know there were one or two more but I can't remember what they were. I've probably "started" about twenty courses on Study so the percentage of available placement exams in my experience is pretty small.

Study, what is the maximum percentage that one could place out of a course? Could someone who really knows a topic well be able to test all of the way out of a course?
BA, MA, EdS, MMT, etc.

The study.com placement test page that Btaylor89 just posted a link to says that you can earn up to 100% course progress through it. So supposedly all of it except the final.
But it also says at the bottom that you have to take multiple placement tests to do that because each one only covers a portion of the whole course.
