Many colleges put a great deal of weight on student ACT/SAT test scores when considering applications. Cappex can help you see how you rank compared to students who have been accepted to Thomas Edison State College
Here are several tips for success at Thomas Edison: Thomas Edison is well noted for its many alternative methods of learning, aside from traditional classroom based lecture. Guided Study: Work independently with assistance of a mentor. Online Courses: Work with a mentor and other students through a series of lesson, reading assignments, discussion forum posts. TECEP: Thomas Edison State Course Equivalency Examinations: TECEP's are exams which must be proctored (by an approved proctor) for a variety of courses. The examinations cover the subject matter normally covered in a twelve week semester. Course on thumb Drive: Independent Study with course materials loaded onto a thumb drive. EPACK: EPACK's are independent study with no faculty assigned. Assessment is online with an approved collegiate proctor. CLEP/DANTES: CLEP and DANTES are independent exams taken online at an approved college near your location and on a variety of general education topics. Prior Learning Assessment: This is independent study with an assigned faculty member, in which the student must provide a portfolio validation of previous work and life experience which directly speaks to the course objectives which will be provided to the student. All course delivery methods have an examination assessment with an approved collegiate proctor or testing center with the exception of Prior Learning Assessment. PLA is a portfolio completed by the student and assessed by the course faculty member. The student must provide formal documentation such as; letters from sponsors or educators, supervisors, human resources, video or audio tapes, photos, or other proofs of compliance which must respond to each of the course learning objectives. Many PLA courses also require a narrative essay to support course learning objectives. While CLEP/DANTES and, TECEP course challenge examinations can help the student save quite a bit of money, I recommend blended learning with challenge exams as well as PLA, Guided Study and Online Courses. The benefit of taking Guided Study or Online Courses is that it helps the student to develop his or her writing skills. PLA courses help the student to identify course learning objectives and critically think of how to develop a regimented portfolio of validation to support the claim of prior learning experience. One other tip for students is to utilize the student electronic bulletin board to gain additional insights and helpful strategies to mitigate your educational adventure. Finally: Communicate with your Academic Advisor; discuss course selections, course strategies, and how your curriculum will benefit you in the working world.Read More
