Grades in Webcourses@UCF Personalized Learning

Frequently Asked Questions

How is my grade determined in Webcourses@UCF Personalized Learning?

Personalized learning requires you to take a different look at how you learn. One of the biggest changes will be seen in the grading process. Grades are not just scores from answering questions. Grades come from the continual gathering of evidence from knowledge accumulation. They may include knowledge covered, the knowledge state, time, and ability. These factors are dependent on settings made by the instructor.

What does knowledge state mean?

Your knowledge state is an average score across all nodes/content modules for the current assignment, including how you performed answering questions. The Knowledge State alone does not take into account time, effort, or number of revisions.

Where can I find my grade?

Webcourses@UCF Personalized Learning keeps track of your complete progress (Composite Score). Upon the due date, the grade transfers to Webcourses@UCF. In most cases, the grade can be changed by going back to revise.
