Cost accommodating classroom technology
The Good: There is way more good about WGU than bad in my opinion. WGU fit the bill and after considerable investigation into them I decided to start their IT Security degree. When I didn't meet a goal or needed guidance, my advisor encouraged me and pushed me to continue progressing through the program. My advisor did a great job contacting me weekly or every other week to check on my progress. I typically had a goal already in mind to share with her.
The Bad: There are still some things WGU needs to work out when it comes to some of the curriculum and tracks they offer.
Combine this with the certifications you get and this is a tremendous educational value.
The cost of WGU is much less than nearly any other online or brick and mortar school, and the more classes you want to take in a semester the less you pay and faster you get done.
The coursework was well organized and easy to access from a laptop, phone, or i Pad.
I passed with flying colors and I moved into the role of teaching ELLs the following school year.
For objective assessments (OA) many of us are used to taking a practice test and then being provided with the answers to the questions you got wrong or a rationale for the questions. Furthermore, If you go to your instructor and ask for guidance on the test, you will be told that they also do not have access to the testing material and therefore can not guide you in resolving any academic shortcomings.
