[[rules for completing requirements]]

You are automatically enrolled in this class because it is mandatory for all students at TCNJ. Please note that this is an online course. There are no scheduled class meetings, either in person or online. Also, note that a 75% score in each of the six modules is required to pass IDS 102.

To complete all of the course’s requirements, use the MODULES link on the left side of the screen.

You are strongly encouraged to carefully review the teaching for each module before you attempt the corresponding graded quiz for that module.

You must complete the pre-course assessment before starting the teaching and quizzes for modules 1 through 6. The post-course assessment must be taken after you have completed your last module.

You must complete all of the six graded module quizzes by day’s end (11:59pm), Tuesday, October 13. You are allowed a maximum of 3 attempts at each module, so it is highly recommended that you thoroughly review the teaching for the modules before you complete and submit your graded quizzes.

To check your progress in the course, click on the GRADES link. Please note that a 75% score in each and every one of the six modules is required to pass IDS 102.

Optional face-to-face instruction is available during in-person meetings, by appointment.

Best wishes for success this semester!
