Q: I see quiz questions in the course. Can I get an overall course grade from those?
A: No. The quiz questions serve to reinforce concepts within the activity but do not offer an overall course grade.
Q: How can I get grades from this course?
A: Each activity is an opportunity for a formative grade. Ex: Students can turn in their responses to the Interest Inventory activity and/or their Journal Entries.
Each section has Section Goals with different ways for youth to Show What You Know. These are also an opportunity for a formative or summative grade.
Upon completion of the course, the Activity Guide or the student's idea journal can be a summative grade.
