Hi all! I am inquiring into the program....how are the assessments set up? Is it via webcam with instructor or is it point and click tests on blackboard?
The objective assessments or "tests" are done on the computer with a webcam set up to proctor your exam. There is also an option to take your exams at a predetermined testing site where they proctor you on the computer there. I've only taken 3 objective assessments, one was a prereq class for the program, the second was a non-proctored exam I did on my computer at home and the third was for my MSN program. The first and third I opted to do at a testing site as I have a very busy household and didn't want noise or interruptions that could ultimately cause me to be shut out of the test. The other assessments are performance assessments that are generally papers you write or Powerpoints and the like.
I want to note that I started the program in August of last year, so things have changed and there are possibly more objective assessments now than when I went through.
Hope that helps!
