Download the Course Module Preview
This module course includes five sections: Getting Started, Learn, Connect, Practice, and
Competency Assessment. You are not required to complete the sections in any particular order,
but you must complete the readiness check in “Getting Started” first in order to access content
in all of the other sections. The competency assessment is the only graded assignment in the
Getting Started: This section introduces you to the learning outcome that is the focus for the
module. You must complete the readiness check in this section in order to access the other
sections in the course.
Readiness Check
Each competency module begins with a readiness check. This is a multiple-choice
assessment with feedback that gives you an opportunity to gauge your current
knowledge of the content and decide what to study in order to cover gaps in your
knowledge and be successful on the final competency assessment. The readiness
check is not graded and does not affect your standing in the module. You must complete
the readiness check to gain access to the other course content and the competency
assessment. You are only provided one attempt on the readiness check.
Learn: This section is designed to allow you to review and/or learn the content related to the
learning outcome that will be assessed in the competency assessment. This section may
include reading, research, recorded videos, and other informational resources to review
concepts related to the learning outcome.
Page 4
Connect: This section offers further insight into the focus of this module by providing
opportunities to interact with your instructor and classmates. These interactions include
live Faculty Connect opportunities and asynchronous discussion topics.
Faculty Connect opportunities are held weekly and focus on topics related to the course.
The Faculty Connect opportunities will be structured to address your questions about
specific competency modules and their competency assessments. Faculty Connect
opportunities are optional, but you are strongly encouraged to attend. Your instructor will
provide you additional information about the Faculty Connect opportunities.
Practice: This section includes activities designed to help you practice the concepts you need
to know to complete the competency assessment. These activities may be knowledge checks,
quizzes, or labs. All practice activities include feedback.
Competency Assessment: The competency assessment (CA) assesses your level of
performance on the specific learning outcome that is the focus of the module. CAs are
performance-based assessments that require you to demonstrate your knowledge,
understanding, and proficiency through the creation of a product, artifact, or exam. The other
learning activities in the competency module are designed to help you achieve mastery on the
CA. You must pass the CA to receive credit, and you can attempt the assessment an unlimited
number of times within the six week term. However, the CA must be completed successfully by
the end of the term to earn credit. A score of “A” or “B” is a passing grade for the module. You
may not resubmit an assessment during this term if a minimum passing score of “B” has been
earned. Your performance on the CA is assessed with a Competency Assessment Checklist
Rubric. Be sure to review any minimum submission requirements provided in the competency
assessment directions. If the work submitted for this competency assessment does not meet the
minimum submission requirements, it will be returned for revision. If the work submitted does
not meet the minimum submission requirements by the end of the term, you will receive a failing
End-of-Term Submission Requirements: The deadline to submit competency assessments is
Sunday, 11:59 p.m. ET of the final week of the term. If you expect to receive feedback, revise,
and resubmit a CA near the end of the term, you are encouraged to make your submission no
later than 6 days (Thursday, 11:59 p.. ET) before the end of the final week of the term.
Submissions submitted on the Sunday of the final week will be graded before final grades are
due rather than in the timeframe instructors use during the term.

The Discussion Board is where you post your responses to discussion topics and share your
experiences in completing exercises and applying the content of the module. Discussion topics
provide a forum for you to seek clarification and answer important questions about the course
material. The discussion also allows you to receive feedback from the instructor and other
students in the class.
Competency assessments submitted during the term will be graded within 24 hours.
Assessments submitted on Friday will be graded within 72 hours and assessments submitted on
Saturday will be graded within 48 hours, with the exception of assessments submitted on the
Sunday of the final week of the term and holidays. Assessments submitted on the Sunday of the
end of the term will be graded by the final grade deadline. If there is a holiday, assessments will
be returned within 24 hours of the return from the holiday. Refer to the Gradebook and Dropbox
within your course to review the feedback. If you do not earn a passing score on your attempt,
you should use the feedback provided to help guide your next attempt. Assessments submitted
on Sunday of the final week are final and cannot be revised. If you have any questions or
concerns about your competency assessment score and/or the feedback you receive, be sure
to contact your instructor for clarification.
The Competency Assessment Checklist Rubric is provided in the Competency Assessment
section of the course. The rubric is a tool your instructor uses to determine your performance on
the Competency Assessment. The rubric consists of a list of criterion statements indicating the
requirements to show competent performance on the learning outcome. Criterion are listed
separately in order to indicate the items that are the minimum requirement to show competent
performance, while other criteria represent mastery level achievement. All competency criterion
Page 6
statements must be met to pass the Competency Assessment. To receive an A, you must
carefully review the rubric and complete the required number of mastery criteria. You should
follow the rubric so you understand exactly what is expected of you and how you will be
evaluated in the Competency Assessment. Following the rubric will help make sure you
demonstrate competence in all required aspects of the Competency Assessment. You are
encouraged to read both the Competency Assessment directions and the checklist rubric when
you first start the module. Talk to your professor right away if you have any questions about
Tutoring and many other resources are available in the Academic Success Center section of the
My Studies tab on the Purdue Global Campus home page.
Interactions in an online classroom can be in written form as well as in audio or video. Your
comfort level with expressing ideas and feelings in writing will add to your success in an online
course. The ability to write is necessary, but you also need to understand what is considered
appropriate when communicating online.
The word “netiquette” is short for “Internet etiquette.” Rules of netiquette have grown organically
with the growth of the Internet to help users act responsibly when they access or transmit
information online. As a student, you should be aware of the common rules of netiquette for the
web and employ a communication style that follows these guidelines.
Wait to respond to a message that upsets you and be careful of what you say and how
you say it.
Be considerate. Rude or threatening language, inflammatory assertions (often referred
to as “flaming”), personal attacks, and other inappropriate communication will not be
Never post a message that is in all capital letters — it comes across to the reader as
SHOUTING! Use boldface and italics sparingly, as they can denote sarcasm.
Page 7
Keep messages short and to the point.
Always practice good grammar, punctuation, and composition. This shows that you have
taken the time to craft your response and that you respect your classmates’ work.
Keep in mind that Discussion Boards are meant to be constructive exchanges, and it is
important to respect those views that are different from yours.
Be respectful and treat everyone as you would want to be treated yourself.
Use spell check before sending a written message
Using a webcam in an online meeting room requires thought and consideration for the
netiquette environment. Keep your surroundings free of clutter and distraction. Do not allow
others in your setting to enter the webcam view. Be sure your attire and background are
appropriate for a classroom setting. If in doubt, turn off your camera. When using a microphone
be mindful of your mute button – stay on mute until it is an appropriate time to speak – then
enable your mute button again when you have finished sharing. Also, be mindful of how you
reply to differing opinions or course content that you may not agree with. Feel free to express
your views and ask questions in a calm and respectful way.
You should also review and refer to the section on Responsible Use of University Technology
contained in the most recent Purdue Global Catalog.
