Coursera, Inc.

Coursera is a social entrepreneurship company that partners with the top universities in the world to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. We envision a future where the top universities are educating not only thousands of students, but millions. Our technology enables the best professors to teach tens or hundreds of thousands of students.

Through this, we hope to give everyone access to the world-class education that has so far been available only to a select few. We want to empower people with education that will improve their lives, the lives of their families, and the communities they live in.

Source of Official Student Records:   To keep a high level of accuracy of the records, Coursera employs automated grading processes that have a lower risk of human errors, and stores the records in Coursera's secure database. A copy of these records is always available, and there are secure back-ups for the data. At any point of time, the scores of the assessments can be re-computed to confirm that the scores obtained for a particular student are accurate.
How Results are Reported:   Once Coursera receives the examination report from the online proctor (ProctorU) indicating the student did not violate any exam policies, Coursera confirms the exam score and adds it to the students gradebook to be used for calculating their final grade in the Transfer Credit Track.
Retake Policy:   A student can only attempt the Credit Final Exam once per Transfer Credit Track course offering. If a student takes a course's Credit Final Exam and does not meet the course's Transfer Credit Track passing criteria they will not be eligible to receive ACE CREDIT.
