Does anyone know where to see how your submitted assignments were graded.   I found the final grade but I want to see what I did wrong so I can correct it

where can I find the graded rubric for assignments submitted?

  Only Foreign language left but college wants crazy high clep scores. Need options.
Posted by: WitsEnd - 3 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (6)

So for whatever reason my college wants 16 credit hours instead of the usual 12 that pretty much every college in the US wants to meet the language requirement. This screws up everything beyond all belief. First of all my college wants a score of a 68 to clep out of any language fully but just to clep out of one class is a 50 vs the high 40's other colleges require. Worst yet this weird above and beyond credit requirement means I have not been able to find any colleges around me I can transfer the credits in. They simply will not take them because the credit numbers do not match up. The only college they will take is Rio but since they are out of state its almost 1000 dollars a class. I only have this stupid requirement left and I don't want to take out another loan to finish. My college wants around 7000 dollars just to take these four high credit courses at their institution. I really don't want to take out another loan for this. I don't mind any solutions involving more money but certainly don't want to pay that much. Aside from the money it will take a full flipping year just to take 4 classes. They don't offer any accelerated options like other colleges. Rio does not offer accelerated besides the fact you can work through the holidays. Is there anything I am missing? Maybe another college that will transfer in with accelerated options?

  TESU cos-111 - introduction to programming equivalency?
Posted by: posabsolute - 7 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (11)

Hey guys,

For fun I added the BA in CS to my evaluation, It seems I would basically missing 4 courses that I would need to take at TESU, mainly:

* data structure
* discrete math
* operating system
* computer architecture

But I was surprised to see that SL C++ class does not fit the introduction to programming requirement, any self-paced class would fit there? Maybe the new onlinedegree.com class would fit, but it's not opened to canadian..

thanks!

Exclamation TESU BSBA with foreign credits
Posted by: pgsatx - Yesterday, 06:58 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (8)

Hello everybody,

  1. Firstly, hats off to each and everyone in their journey for knowledge. Appreciate the responses that I have already received and the numerous templates available.
I moved to the united states around 2005 had a lot of adventure with my own work, went through life and now I have a regular 8-hour job and I like what I do, so far. I consider myself to be a creative person and feel that the time has come for me to think differently at work and in life in general. 
Thought of starting my master's degree in 2009 and visited a few institutions too. That was then, I am here now. 

This year I got serious and started my roadmap for which my starting point was getting my foreign 3-year degree evaluated. Note the following:
-I graduated in 2001 with a business degree
-that I was in possession of all the original marks statement for all three years
-that I never collected my degree or transcripts
-my three-year marks statement were enough, all this time. 

So the tedious task of digging up my transcript and degree began in early 2018 (Feb) from the foreign university. After much difficulty, I sent it all for evaluation to WES.
WES deemed my foreign degree to be equivalent to a three-year degree in the U.S awarding me a total of 90 credits.

I was under the impression that I could bridge the gap and secure some form of conditional admission in a masters program or at least get admitted to an undergraduate program and complete this formality. I am tired of phone calls, emails and transcript fees.

I am so glad all of this happened. I am not going to waste my time anymore. I could be very well studying and I already am. I found about the process and you all evening of Jul 17, did as much research as possible and am now ready to get some more help. 
  • I went through the beginner's guide and please don't hesitate to mention that to me again, should the need arise. 
  • Wiki link is broken.
  • Yes, I (according to WES) have 90 US equivalent credits and original documents.
     2. So that you all could better gauge
[*]I am looking at a fast track. So the order will be fast/easy/cheap (checked with my benefits provider and found that CLEP, SL, DSST expenses are all covered)

[*]Yes, at my new work location I am about 2 miles from the nearest CLEP testing site. Shouldn't take 5-8 minutes
[*]I have time to study in the evenings and could go test at a site as well. Online would also be an option as the benefits cover it. (if going online will help me knock tests out better if         you guys experienced it, I am all for it)
[*]I have $5400 set aside for this year. Idea is to finish off an undergraduate degree. Then like "Johnnie Walker" ...keep walking and visit with MBA
[*]So the order will be fast/easy/cheap

     3. What help or advice am I looking for?
  • I visited TESU website, talked to them and was advised to apply first
  • WES is going to send them my evaluation (course by course) and my certified transcript and degree from the previous institution
  • I need help understanding how do their bachelors to MBA program work (will it be conducive to use my existing credit in some form, fulfill missing credits and jump to an MBA OR
    complete my undergraduate degree go to a school of my choice? (Thinking of a live classroom setting for a few during my masters)-For the purpose of finishing the undergraduate program first. I compared most programs in TESU and have narrowed it down to BSBA CIS or BSBA MARKETING (don't know how closely previous credits will align with it but from the looks of it, it does to a large extent. (check the .xls file attached)-I want you guys to critique my plan, give me pointers so that when I talk to the advisor in a few days, I could contribute and drive the plan-I want to understand the what. I have received a lot of information in the last 3 days and I am ready to act. -I consider myself confident and understand that I can do it and this is the way I am going.Thank you all for paying attention. Attached is a draft of my degree planP

Posted by: Jimmy999 - Yesterday, 01:49 PM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (3)

I need to take both Micro & Macro Economics for my Degree plan and was wondering if a fellow study.com user could help.

Which course should I complete 1st?    Will Taking Micro Economics 1st help complete some of the chapters in the Macro?  or Vice-Versa?

Any Advice would be greatly appreciated

  American College of Education (ACE)
Posted by: acamp - 07-18-2018, 08:51 PM - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - No Replies

Good evening all,
I searched and saw a few threads regarding the college “American College of Education”.

Their masters degrees are less than $10k but they do not accept financial aid.

Has anyone on the forum worked on a masters degree through this college? If so, can you share your thoughts/experiences?

Thanks in advance!
