What do I need to do to pass the course? What is the minimum passing grade for a certificate?
In the RITX Cybersecurity courses (CYBER501x, CYBER02x, CYBER503x, CYBER504x), you must complete weekly graded quizzes before the course end date. Some quizzes are highly technical while others consist of questions related to policy, procedures, and general security knowledge. You must get a cumulative grade (Total score) of 80% or higher in order to pass the course. You can view your Total score on your Progress Page.
If you want to get a certificate, you must upgrade to verified before the deadline listed on the course Home Page and pass the course with a 80% or higher.
Do I have to get a 80% on each graded activity to pass?
We only look at your cumulative grade (Total score). This means that you can get a lower grade on some quizzes and a higher score on other quizzes, as long as your Total score at the end of the course is 80% or higher.
If I fail a quiz, can I still pass the course?
If you fail one quiz, you may still be able to pass the course as long as you do well enough on the remaining quizzes to achieve a Total score of 80%. It all depends on how well you do on the other quizzes.
