Information Literacy

  1. I am about to register for this class. However I do remember someone talking about a class that excelsior is accepting that is cheaper. Does anyone know what class that is? And if not does anyone know if there is a book that has to be bought for this class?

    The change went into effect on Jan 1, 2013 when Penn Foster originally had a delay in approval for ACE credits. Apparently Excelsior took a second look and found it was inadequate for the requirement. Right now the only option is Excelsior's class... There are few other schools that offer the course as most schools include the requirement in their major curriculum. My undergrad program for a different major included the info lit requirement in the major class "research methods". My local CC includes the requirement in various major classes instead as a separate class for any major.

    It's easy - you shouldn't have any problem passing it.

    I know a few ppl that took it and they said it was so easy. They said they did it in one day.

    I took it in 2 days. You can do it in less than a day. Best wishes.

    Not bad at all. You are able to go back to the modules during the final. However know where to look information up quickly if need be bc you can lose time doing so if you don't already know the answers. Other than that it's easy. I finished all 5 quizzes in one sitting and did the final before the end date. Good luck!
