The SDA Experience
Rasmussen believes it is important to honor the knowledge that learners bring to the university. As such, Rasmussen offers a variety Knowledge Credit ™ self-directed assessments (SDAs) that give learners the opportunity to “test out” of select courses. When successful, learners can save time and money with SDAs. Some SDAs test your knowledge through projects, while others use multiple choice and short answer assessments guided by artificial intelligence grading and feedback. SDAs also include small bursts of content and/or virtual interaction technology to ensure Rasmussen students are brought closer to real-world situations when demonstrating their skills online. Depending on your program, these exciting assessments fulfill most or all of your general education program requirements and some areas of your major. Talk to your advisor to see which SDAs are available to you. Please see the videos below to understand the full SDA experience.
