100% Score

Congratulations! You have been assigned a score of 100%. This means that it is very evident your work is accurate, complete and honest. You may consider this assignment finished and advance to the next task or lesson in this course. 

Please note that a 100% score does not mean that everything in an assignment is perfect.  Some errors can go unnoticed by the grader.

Review, Revise & Re-submit!

While a low score may be disappointing, you may submit an assignment three times and earn a perfect score.  Review your lesson and assignment, revise your answers and re-submit for re-grading.   

Is Tutoring Needed?

If a student struggles to earn desired scores, it may be a sign that tutoring is needed.  Tutoring can help a student to learn how to complete assignments independently in the future.  In a private tutoring session, Mr. Michael will review assignments with a student, discuss the problems and help complete the assignments properly.  To schedule a tutoring session, click here.
