As you take your online course, you may notice some version of the word "grade" here and there. You may be concerned that we are grading your performance in our courses.
Simply put, we do not grade anything you do in the courses. Nothing. Zip. Zilch.
That said, we use a robust Learning Management System (LMS) called Canvas that has a big grading component. That’s just part of the territory for LMS systems. Lots of organizations (universities, for example) would want to grade, and so you may see remnants of that functionality.
While we have eliminated the most obvious references to grading points or similar verbage in our courses, there are some technical reasons why we cannot take out all references. Please overlook them when they appear.
Please rest assured that the CAC does not grade its online courses in any way.
