    Hello. I was wondering if there was any way to see the quiz results after my child takes it?

      Hi Andrea–Let me ask an associate and get back to you. I don’t see it as an option we can enable on the back end. In the meantime, ask your child to take a photo or screenshot (Windows and macOS directions) when completing the quiz, when the score is shown.

      Andrea: It’s been a while, but I can finally report that yes, quiz scores are viewable. Make sure you or your student is logged in, the go to https://mycompassclassroom.com/dashboard/ and you will see all the progress by course. Click a course to expand and see the quiz grades for that course.

    Wondering if you have a teachers guide for this course.. that gives answer guides for the discussions and review questions at the end of each lesson.

    The student guide gives instruction for 2-3 page essays. Is this double spaced and so 500-750 words or single and 1000-1500 words?

      We intended single spaced responses, but modify for your student as needed!

    Is the course a half credit course at it is – without having to add any additional readings/textbooks? We are excited to begin!

    I’m wondering if anyone else has added the Basic Economics by Carson that is recommended to make it a full-year course and if so if the teacher’s guide from that publisher, Boundary Stone, is needed?

    Hi,

    I’m adding the Basic Economics textbook to make this course a full credit. The Economics for Everybody study guide says which chapters to read each week, but I’m not sure if that includes doing the review questions and activities in Basic Economics.

      Hi Grace: Going beyond the readings is a family-by-family decision on what is needed for credit. You’d need the answer key published by Boundary Stone to see their answers for that textbook. We wanted to make sure that the books were cross-referenced so you could decide on where to spend more time. For instance, there are project/research suggestions in our Study Guide, but you may want to nix those in favor of the projects in Cleveland’s book. Make sense?
