I felt the questions through out the milestones were a little misleading and to confusing based on the text. They should be more straight forward.

I like the organization of the course material and options. It made learning the material easier once I got into it. Then I was on a roll.

The project management course was interesting and had a lot of really worthwhile information. However, I felt like several of the test questions were not very well done, being misleading or lacking context. For example, it would ask questions like "Bob leaves the company, and now must be replaced with a Junior Programmer. Is this a low, medium, or high probability risk?" If Bob has been with the company for 20 years, its probably a low risk, but if he's been there for 6 months, it might be a high risk. Some other alternatives that show up are questions like "How should this be communicated to a given party" and the text states that you can do one or the other, but both are listed as options in the test. There's not a ton of these sorts of questions, but there's enough of them that it definitely brought my grade down 3-4% over the entire course. While that is frustrating, the course material is solid and there is a lot of valuable information there for anyone interested.

This was a hard course. Make sure you read the tutorials and watch the course videos. Overall this course was very informative.


  • Q: What does "Try it for Free" mean?

    A: The Free Trial allows you to access the course of your choice, or multiple courses. It gives you access to the first unit ("Challenge 1") in the course. This will let you meet the course instructors, sample the instructional content, and answer a set of assessment questions in the Challenge. You can also read the Student Guide and watch an Orientation Video to learn more about the course format, requirements, and resources.

    Any work you complete in the Free Trial is saved, so if you decide to register, you do not need to repeat it. Of course, we also let you reset it and start over if you wish.

  • Q: Does Sophia accept third-party payment for membership, such as financial aid or military benefits?

    A: Sophia is not a college or university and is not eligible for financial aid, military benefits, or other third-party payments. A Sophia membership is considered an out-of-pocket educational expense.

  • Q: When do the courses start and how long do I have to complete a course?

    A: You choose your own course start date and have 60 days from your chosen start date to complete each course. Sophia courses are self-paced, so many students complete a course in less than 60 days.

  • Q: Where do I get the textbooks for my course?

    A: You do not need any textbooks for Sophia courses. All material is taught by video and text-based tutorials that are in the courseroom, and are included as part of a Sophia membership.

  • Q: How am I graded in the course?

    A: Sophia courses are graded on a pass/fail basis, with 70% overall required to pass the course. Your score is based upon points earned in the formative assessments ("Challenges"), summative assessments ("Milestones"), and if applicable, the authentic assessments ("Touchstones"). Currently, our Foundations of English Composition, English Composition I, and Public Speaking courses contain Touchstones.

  • Q: How do I know which courses I should take?

    A: Consult with your academic adviser at your university to determine specifically which Sophia courses could fit into your program. You can download the course syllabus directly from our site to share with your school advisor.

  • Q: Are the tests proctored?

    A: Sophia courses utilize keyboard biometrics as an alternative to proctoring. No webcam is needed for a Sophia course.

  • Q: I'm taking a course where I have to submit Touchstones. How long does it take for my Touchstone to be graded once it's submitted?

    A: We provide our faculty graders with up to 7 business days to grade a Touchstone. The actual time may vary based on volume and grader capacity.

Oh no. Please don't go.
