How are learners assessed?
To receive a certificate, learners must review all content contained with in the course and pass a multiple choice question quiz, required passing rates vary between courses and individual quizzes. If you do not pass on the first try, you have the opportunity to retake the quiz and proceed onto the next stage of the course.
If a video is embedded in the course, these must be watched in full and a learner can not skip over his material.
When a learner successfully passes the quiz and watches all video material, they are presented with a digital certificate.
