INSTRUCTIONS

  • We do NOT keep any records for students who are Monitoring Only.  Therefore, if you want to keep track of your progress you may download and print out a copy of the Course Record Form on which you can record the minimum attendance and other information for this course.

  • Textbook:
        The textbook is divided into nine sections. Not more than one section should be completed each week. At the end of each section you will stop and take the Section Test that corresponds with the section you just finished studying. All Section Tests are “open book,” which means you may use your textbook while taking the tests.  You should not go on to study the next section until you have completed and submitted your homework for the current section, if any, and passed the current section test.

  • Attendance:
        The minimum suggested attendance for this course is nine weeks.
       
    The minimum suggested attendance per section/lesson is one week.

  • Homework:
       
    All homework assignments must be completed and turned in before taking the Section Test or the Final Test.  If you do not complete the homework assignments for a particular week, then you may not take that week's Section Test nor go on to study the next lesson until you have completed the assignments for the current week.  Once you have completed the homework and taken, and passed, the Section Test, then you may go on to study the next section starting on the following day.

  • Testing:
    At the end of each section you will stop and take the Section Test.  
    -  If you fail the test then you need to restudy that entire section and then retake the test. Repeat this process until you finally pass the test.  You cannot go on to the next section until you have passed the test for the current one.  That means that you cannot read the entire text and then come back and take all of the tests at once.  You must study one section of the text and then take and pass the test for that section before going on to study the next section.
    If you missed
    any of the questions on any test, whether you pass it or not, then you should review the section corresponding to that test and look up the correct answers to any questions answered incorrectly. Once you have found all of the correct answers, then you may continue on to the next section of the textbook.  You may use the correct answers from the copy of the failed test that was sent to you for comparison purposes to make sure you have found the correct answers in the textbook.  The correct answers on the copy of the failed test should be used only for comparison purposes.
      
    Note:
    Homework assignments must be completed and those that are to be turned in need to be submitted before taking the section test.  You will be asked on each test for any sections requiring homework, if you have completed your homework and submitted the necessary parts of it.  If you have not, then you will fail the test because you will have to answer those questions "no" and the points lost for a "no" answer to either one of those two questions will make it impossible to attain a passing score.  We do not receive copies of your tests, so if you lie on one of them about whether you have completed and/or submitted your homework, then we will leave it to God to decide what will be done to you to restore you to the Lord's favor.

  • FINAL TEST
    Once you have completed all sections of the textbook and passed all of the corresponding tests, and found the correct answers to any questions missed on any test, then you will Retrieve the Password and, upon receiving the Password, take the Final Test for the course.  Final Test is "open book."
    If you fail the final test then you need to restudy both the textbook and all of the section tests and and find the correct answers to every question missed on the test, and then retake the final test. Repeat this process until you pass the Final Test.
    If you miss any questions on the Final Test, even though you passed it, then you should review the textbook and all of the section tests and find the correct answers in the textbook to the questions you missed. This process is suggested because it will afford you the best opportunity to gain the most from your study of this course.
