This article is about the new JUNO learning management system (LMS). If you don’t see these features on your site, your platform still uses the legacy JUNO courses.

If a course is graded, you can pass or fail and earn course credits. This article explains how grading works.

Earn points for questions

You earn points when you answer questions correctly. An incorrect answer is worth nothing. Each question might be worth a different number of points, depending on how the course was set up.

How grades are calculated

Grades are calculated for each lesson within a course. (Some lessons might not be graded.) Then those grades are averaged to determine your grade for the whole course.

Getting grades for each lesson

A lesson grade is calculated like this: Sum of points earned / Total points possible = %. To pass, your grade must meet or exceed the set passing percentage.

When you select Next Lesson to complete the lesson, a pop-up lets you know if you passed or failed and what your grade is. If you fail a lesson, you still go on to the next one.

The pop-up says 'You Passed' and 'You scored 80 percent.' A button prompts you to go to the next lesson.

You’ll know your lesson grade when you complete the lesson.

Getting your total course grade

The total course grade is calculated by averaging all lesson grades. To pass, your grade must meet or exceed the set passing percentage.

When you select Complete Course at the end, a pop-up lets you know if you passed or failed and what your grade is. If you pass, you earn full course credit points, which are added to your transcript.

A pop-up appears on the screen when you click 'Complete Course.' In this example, it says 'You passed' and 'You scored 80 percent'

You’ll know if you passed or failed when you complete the course.
