Prerequisites

Make sure you have all eClsss prerequisites. Prerequisites define the knowledge and skills you should have at the beginning of a class. If a class requires competence or mastery of a skill, that means you should be able to perform that skill with no or very minimal assistance. If you have the proper prerequisites you are prime to begin a class and are the most likely to be successful in achieving learning outcomes.

  • If you lack prerequisites, you would at best have a difficult time learning the lesson. You would at worst be frustrated and lost. If you do not have prerequisites it is advised that you do not take the class.
  • If you have substantially more than the class prerequisites, and if you are not afraid of becoming bored completing assignments below your skill level, you are welcome to take the class for review purposes. But remember instruction may be redundant for you and advanced questions may be beyond the scope of the class.
