Yes! Learners may re-take DEDP courses (including the Proctored Exams) as many times as they wish in order to achieve their target scores. However, in order to re-take a DEDP Proctored Exam, you must both enroll in a future session of the course and submit payment again—in order to upgrade to the Verified (Paid) enrollment track. A course's Proctored Exam may be attempted only once per DEDP semester, and the course payment provides one Proctored Exam attempt.
During the future course session, learners are welcome and encouraged to re-complete the coursework—either to improve their Cumulative Course Score (in order to achieve a higher Overall Course Score) or simply in order to review the course content!
Alternatively, if you are already comfortable with the Cumulative Course Score you earned in a previous session of the course, then you may elect to import your scores from that previous course session. In order to import the Cumulative Course Score from a previous session of a DEDP course, you must reach out to the course team to request they do so. Instructions for importing scores are communicated at the beginning of each DEDP course session, within the courseware.
For more information about the Course Scoring Calculation, please see below or refer to this FAQ article.
For each DEDP Course Session:
- The Cumulative Course Score comprises the score earned across all the coursework (including assignments and finger exercises) and the Comprehensive Review.
- The Proctored Exam Score comprises solely the score earned for the Proctored Exam.
- The Overall Course Score is a weighted average of both the Cumulative Course Score and the Proctored Exam Score.
- The Cumulative Course Score is worth 30% of the Overall Course Score
- The Proctored Exam Score is worth 70% of the Overall Course Score
The passing criteria for a DEDP course is an Overall Course Score of 50% or higher.
