It is required for a student to pass a course final exam with a required passing score of 70% or higher. There are 30 multiple-choice questions.

While in the exam, the student can quit the exam at any time. If a student quits the exam and answers questions before leaving, this will be saved.

Once all questions are answered, the system will mention this and allow students to review their responses. Once all the questions are reviewed, click “Submit Exam” to finalize and submit the exam.

Once submitted, the results will display their score and if they passed or failed. A failing score will advise the student they are permitted one retake.

If a student failed, they would have access to their retake immediately. Before proceeding, it is recommended to review the course material as they are only permitted one retake. This information is mentioned after clicking the “Important Info” messaging under their failed score as well:

If they fail the second time, the student will receive instructions stating that they failed the retake final exam and to call the school for further assistance.
