Currently stalking my student portal while at work so that i can start my orientation asap! How long did it take yall to complete? I want to start on my biochem projects as soon as i complete orientation! Anyone else stalking with me?

Btw i finished it in two hours! Cha ching!

Hahaha!!! You are on a roll. I just enrolled in a payment plan yesterday. I hope admissions clears me asap.

I have completed the orientation and wanted to get started on Biochemistry but the system is currently down! Hopefully it will k soon because I was really hoping to knock out some coursework. BrittanyMcGheeCole, were you able to get access to what the tasks were before the system shut ?

Are you telling me that the courses are accessible soon after orientation without having spoke to your mentor? I am so upset the system is down. I just got home and was excited to start.

Im with you guys! And yes this is true, you can begin to work on tasks, we just can't submit them until we officially start.

I finished the orientation in about 2 hours as well. Started watching the videos on biochem. Good luck to every one!

Anyone finding it a little overwhelming? I am going through random courses because of my curiosity. Ugh!

I know, Im trying to sort everything out myself...

My course of study in the student portal was accessible two weeks before my official start date. The major caveat is the fact that you cannot submit anything until your official start date arrives.

However, I used those two weeks as a head start to complete two biochemistry tasks and study for my DPV1 objective assessment.

The biochem tasks are worded in a way that seems so difficult. I think I am reading too much into it.

Sorry, just now seeing this, Ive slept all day and things just calmed down at work! Im going to start looking at the biochem tasks tonight if the system isn't down!

Biochem is not a typical science class. It is true not to look too much into it. For the first task I remember getting super confused until I watched the video. For the diagrams the videos will be your saving grace. Also the videos help with some of the questions also.

I took the pre-assessment nutrition exam just to see how I would do since I have taken more than one nutrition class in school. I guess I won't see the results till after November 1st, right?

I'm not sure. However, the score should be posted in the same tab/box (assessment tab) that you pressed to take the pre assessment. It's usually available immediately after you take your exam for both pre and final.

For or me nutrition was the easiest class, mainly because I already had a background in it. Again the key is the cohort videos because they tell you what you need to know for the final objective. There are some competency objectives that are in the CoS but in the videos they stated will not be on the final test. I also just took the exam last month so fairly recent.

So I have a stupid question. Where are the tasks located for the biochemistry class? I clicked the assessment box on the "degree plan." It just explains a small description of what the task is. Am I over looking it? Feeling overwhelmed right now.

If you click on the Biochemistry course, then click on the tab "Assessment," you should see a button that says "Taskstream" and it should automatically take you (popup) to the taskstream site. Once you are on that site (taskstream), on the bottom left you should see all the tasks you are required to complete. Click on "task 1" and it will give you the directions you need to do for the first task. This is also the place you will upload and submit your assignments. Hope that helps!
