The Bureau of Education and Testing in the state of Florida did an analysis; they asked exam takers from April 1, 2013 to June 4, 2013, if they took the course in a classroom environment or by distance learning. Here are the results:

Total students taking the course On-Line: 646
First Time Takers - Pass-Fail Rate:
% of In-Class students passing: 35.0%
% of On-Line students passing: 51.9%
Retakers Pass-Fail Rate
% of In-Class students passing: 31.7%
% of On-Line students passing: 40.5%
We at Cooke School have always felt that Distance Learning was an excellent method of education. Why? The reason distance learning works is because distance learning forces students to work through the course because of the assessment requirements. Plus, with our video streaming product, students not only can listen and view the course presentation but they view it over and over again.
I am extremely satisfied with the school, curriculum and staff. I was able to complete the course at my own pace and pass the exam. Dallie's streaming videos, especially the Math, Section 21, rocked. Thank you so much for your help!
