Easy. Unit 5 is the hardest

Challenging course. I like the updated layout of the challenges compared to some previous courses I have taken. Unit 4 and 5 seem to jump into some more advanced concepts than I would have expected. Additional examples would be helpful, sometimes the best explanation for a concept was in the text explaining the answer when you get a challenge questions wrong.

THE COURSE COMPILATION WAS REALLY AWESOME, IT WAS PRETTY WELL STRUCTURED AND CONVEYED IN A WAY CLEAR AND EASIER. HOWEVER, MANY OF THE MILLESTONE QUESTIONS WERE TOTALLY DISSOCIATE OF THE SUBJECT SUPPOSED SEEN IN THE TEXT ( AT LEAST IN THE SOPHIA PDF). THIS KIND OF ISSUES SEEN WORSENED IN THE WHOLE UNIT THREE, WHERE THE QUESTIONS WERE POORLY WORDED, MANY OPTIONS WITH SUBJECTIVE ASPECTS, OR ASKED TO THE STUDENT KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GAMES OF CHANCE OR GAMBLING, LIKE POKER, WITHOUT ANY INTRODUCTION, OR NOTE ABOUT IT.

I feel when going back over the modules there needs to be more examples on how to do the math to make it faster when you have to skim over.

This was my toughest class yet. It was very helpful to be able to use the various instructors to re-watch lessons that I was struggling with. I especially appreciated the tutorials that showed multiple technologies used to help solve problems.

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.
