Desktop version difficulty in accessing the complete collection of a Units tutorials. I missed full sections of a unit due to this until afterward when topics were not making a connection with one another. Mobile devices have a clear description (online and PDF) and take you to the beginning of each unit.

  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments.
