Overall, the Mid Course Assessment is not mandatory to pass and does not affect a student’s standing within the class. However, the Mid-Course Assessments are used as an academic benchmark to review how the student is doing within class and if they may need academic assistance in preparing for the mandatory End Course Assessment.
It is highly recommended that students complete the Mid-Course Assessment. The Mid-Course Assessment is available for the student to take any number of times. If this is not completed, a student is marked “At Risk” and a mentor may reach out to that student.
