A course is organized by Modules. Each module corresponds to an objective found in the official certification exam.
In a Module, the student must complete three steps:
STEP 1. BENCHMARK.
Each module has a preliminary test, Benchmark Assessment. When completed, the Benchmark Assessment results will provide a visual indication of the topics in which the student is already proficient.
STEP 2. LEARN & PRACTICE & CREATE.
Each section of Step 2 corresponds to a sub-objective of the official certification exam. There are three items within each section:
Content. Theoretical explanation of the tools, commands, or actions that make up an exam’s sub-objective.
Knowledge based practice. Theoretical questions about how the Office application works. These questions can be several types, including but not limited to: single choice, multiple choice, or order steps.
Here, the student has the option to view the correct answer(s) and an explanation for each question.
Live in the app practice. Tasks to perform in the app. Here, the student has the option to view a video or go back to the section of where this item topic is explained.
STEP 3. VALIDATE.
The student can perform two tests:
Knowledge based – Post assessment. Theoretical questions about how the Office application works. This test has a minimum of 20 questions. It’s similar to Knowledge based practice in STEP 2, but this assessment does not include explanations.
Live in the app – Post assessment. Tasks to perform in the app. It’s similar to Live in the app practice in STEP 2, but this assessment does not include a video or the option to review the content that discusses this topic.
