Included with your subscription is a parent guide. That covers how to use the course as the workbook/textbook approach. Using the interactive course is even easier! Start with unit one, complete the lecture and associated activities, then you can either use the textbook and have them read it again by themselves and do the written activities, or move on to the labs and associated links. When they complete everything you want them to do - simply move on to the next unit. That's it!
Each unit has a quiz. You can decide how you want them to record their score - a printable gradetracker has been provided. Each end of unit quiz has 10 questions worth 10 points each. 70% is "passing". There are no restrictions on how many times they can take the quizzes so if they get a bad score have them take it again. It's good practice and it's not about the grade anyway - it's about learning. The quiz questions will be randomized, so they won't get the questions in the same order each time. Each time they complete 5 units they will have a test. The tests are 35 questions and can include any of the questions previously asked on quizzes plus new material.
After unit 14 and unit 28 there are exams. The exams will ask 50 questions from a pool of 75-200 depending on their progress through the course, so each exam will be different. Have them take the exams several times if you like - only good things come from more practice - plus they will be exposed to more of the test question pool. Once the final exam is completed you will be able to print a certificate of completion.
One more thing - you do NOT have to print the textbook/workbook. It is very easy to follow links when it is still on the computer. This saves a lot of ink. If you want them to do the bookwork, you have the option of only printing those pages that are necessary. Printing the lab book is helpful - however it is best if they can have access to an online version for links as well.

Certificate of Completion
You have four choices for the certificates. There are different designs based on how much ink you want to use for printing!
