challenging but very good course

I liked the course well enough, and I feel as though I took a lot away from it. I think that people may think that it is going to be easy but it is pretty challenging. I will say that this was my first time dealing with ProctorU and that was an absolute joke. That experience almost ruined the course for me.
Sophia replied on July 27, 2018

Tyler - Congratulations on you successful course completion. We appreciate your feedback about the proctored final exam. Rest assured that we will follow up with ProctorU's leadership team on your experience. Thank you.

The milestones have completely different wordings for the questions than all of the challenges. This makes the course a bit more difficult.

I liked the course and thought it was very informative. I am very interested in this field and I still thought it was a challenging course. There are a few spots where ambiguity crept into questions on the testing portion of the course. I did not particularly care for the portion related to climate change in relation to business. Correlation is not causation when dealing with climate change and because large numbers of people gravitate to the beach and suffer property destruction due to weather, is not proof that human cause climate change. Cooperate to graduate, the questions are easy to answer from the provided material. Overall, I liked the course and will put many of the learned material to work for me. It was not something that I breezed through and will now take something that is more verbal for a bit of a break.

Great course, was somewhat more difficult than the other courses I took at Sophia so far. The only thing I misses is the Sophia Tutorials, I fancy reading more than watching a video lecture. I suggest the Sophia Course Admin to add Sophia Tutorials to this course as well.

FAQ

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for tuition, such as financial aid or military benefits?
    A: Sophia courses are not eligible for most third party payment methods, and must be paid for by credit or debit card. Tuition is due at the time of course registration. Sophia offers both full and partial payment plans as part of the registration process.
  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments. Sophia’s English Composition I, Foundations of English Composition, and Public Speaking courses also include written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.
  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?
    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.
