As an international students, I have gained a general understanding about American economic system and financial system by attending this course. I believe the contents will be helpful for me to make good decisions in both personal and professional settings. However I think the language used in some of the questions should be polished a little bit because some questions are difficult to be understood and cause the confusion. Anyway, it is still a GREAT course.

I’m giving it 5 stars even though it was VERY difficult. Kate’s tutorials are fantastic, combined with the Sophia PDFs and colored pens. This is the 9th and final course I’ve taken with Sophia...what a great way to learn, get credits for it, AND save a tremendous amount of Money!! Thank you!! PS- you know your questions can be unnecessarily tricky, please review that. Took me a total of 20 hours, spread out over 2 weeks.

While I understood a lot of the concepts in the tutorials - the way questions were asked were difficult to follow and made it more about understanding how the question is asked versus having a question that allowed for the answer to demonstrate the understanding of the concepts

This is my first class at Sophia I am taking one more ECO204. I have been attending Ashford for the past three years and also took online classes at another community college. I think at times the questions are not clear as then can be and feel that some questions can be answered more than one way. I think a review of the questions by a 3rd party would be good for Sophia.

FAQ

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for tuition, such as financial aid or military benefits?

  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?
    A: You choose your own start date and have 60 days to complete each course. However, because the courses are self-paced, you can complete them in fewer than 60 days.
  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?
    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the course room, and are included in the cost.
  • Q: How am I graded in the course?
    A: Your overall score is derived from how you do on two types of assessments: Challenges, which are formative assessments, and Milestones, which are summative assessments. Sophia’s English Composition I, Foundations of English Composition, and Public Speaking courses also include written assignments, called Touchstones, that also contribute to your overall score.
  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?
    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.
