North Central Theological Seminary Grading System
Exams and Tests
North Central Theological Seminary administers both supervised and unsupervised testing and examination methods for completion of an assigned course.
Unsupervised Method: After reading the PDF texts issued for a course, Certificate and Bachelor's degree students are required to write a five-page essay summarizing what they have learned. Master's and Doctorate degree students are required to submit a twelve-page essay. For Certificate and Bachelor's degree students, the five page essay must have one page of introduction, three pages of critical thinking regarding the subject matter, and one page of summary conclusion. For Master's and doctorate degree students, the twelve page essay must have one page of introduction, nine pages of critical thinking regarding the subject matter, and two pages of summary conclusion. After the completion of the essay portion of the test, the student is required to create a set of twenty-five multiple choices questions and provide answers to those questions in a Question & Answer format. Completed tests must be submitted online for grading.
Supervised Method: After the student gets a passing grade for his/her essay and multiple test submissions, the student must notify his or her adviser when he/she is ready to take the required live testing to complete the course requirements. Supervised testing is conducted by having the student login to his/her student portal with his/her access code. Upon login, the student will see "Online Test". The student is required to click on it when he/she is ready to take the test by simply following the prompt. The test shall consist of 20 mini-essay type question and 25 multiple choice questions.
The student must complete the essay portion of the test in the time allotted and submit it online within five minutes of the test expiration time, whether or not he or she has finished writing the essay. Failure to do so within the allotted time will result in the student having to re-write the essay at a penalty cost of $35.
North Central Theological Seminary advisers and instructors encourage students to work hard. Students who do not achieve passing grades may try to improve their grades by retaking the courses they need to improve their grades.
