Your Lumen One course materials are organized into Study Plans designed to provide you with everything you need to learn, apply what you’ve learned and check your understanding of course topics. Each Study Plan will update as you go to help you strategize your time.
Study Plan Video Tour
In this video, we'll walk you through a Lumen One Study Plan, including how to earn your participation points.
Key Parts of Each Study Plan
The first time you open a Study Plan, you will see a prompt to "Check Your Readiness." This launches the Readiness Check assessment, which is designed to help you understand if there's any skills you need to review before you jump into topics ahead.
Once completed, your Study Plan will update to show you the "Background You'll Need" and whether - based on your Readiness Check - you're ready or "Needs Review." If something "Needs Review", you can click on the skill to open a quick mini lesson.
The "Learn Section" of the Study Plan has all the readings and practice you'll need to learn the big ideas in this module. It includes:
- Cheat Sheet: A study aid that rounds up key terms, formulas and concepts from the module. You can even download and print a PDF for review.
- Topics: The main topics in this module. Each Topic has a similar design and it's own "Self Check." Inside each topic, you'll find:
- Learn It: This section helps you learn the course content through readings, videos and practice problems.
- Apply It: Here, you'll apply what you’ve learned to a multi-step investigation, case study or problem.
- Self Check: A short assessment that helps you check your understanding before the quiz. Each completed Study Plan counts toward your participation points. (Points are given for completion; not correctness.)
- Fresh Take: Materials to help you learn the big ideas in a different way if you need extra practice or support.
You can use the materials in the "Get Stronger" section to practice. If your professor has assigned them for homework, you can download a PDF here.
Finally, every Study Plan has a Quiz with at least two attempts. In the quiz section you can start an attempt or review data from your past attempts.
What Study Plan Colors Mean
Each time you take an assessment in a module, your Study Plan will dynamically update to help you track what you’ve done and what topics might need additional time.
In the Background You’ll Need section:
- “To Do” means that you haven’t completed the Readiness Check.
- “Done” means you’ve completed the Readiness Check at least once.
- “Needs Work” means there’s a background skill that you might want to review before moving on.
- “Ready” means that the skill does not need review.
In each topic:
- “To Do” means that you haven’t completed the Self Check.
- “Done” means you’ve completed the Self Check at least once.
- “Needs Work” means you missed 1 or more questions about this topic so you might want to keep reviewing. This updates based on your most recent Self Check or Quiz. (In other words, it should reflect your most recent assessment, even if it’s the quiz.)
- “Achieved” means that you answered every question about that topic correctly in your last assessment.
- Study Plan Participation: Your professor can assign participation grades to each Study Plan. Participation for each Study Plan is calculated by how many Readiness Checks and Self Checks you have completed (start to finish – don’t forget to click the finish button) out of the total available in that Study Plan. You can see if you’ve completed a Readiness Check or Self Check in your Study Plan. Look for either a green indicator that says “Done!” or a gray indicator that says “To Do.”
- Quiz: Only your highest quiz score will be reported to your course gradebook, no matter how many times you complete it.
Each question in a quiz counts equally toward your final percentage. (Shown after you submit the quiz.) Some questions, however, have multiple parts and you are given credit for any part that you answer correctly. For example, if your quiz has 10 questions, each question is worth 10% of your quiz. But if one question has four parts, each part is worth is worth 2.5% of your quiz.
