At the end of each chapter there is a review quiz. The review exercise will focus the student's attention on key concepts presented in the chapter. All of the review exercises are geared towards testing the student's knowledge and comprehension of the presented material. Students may find it helpful to refer back to the text relating to the questions being asked. The answers given are reported to the student's instructor for progress monitoring.
Students are required to pass a final exam at the end of the entire course. This examination must be taken online. Access to the final examination will be given once a student has completed all of the course study materials and have passed all of the review quizzes. The final exam contains 150 questions in a multiple choice format. A score of 75% or better is required for passage. The OnlineEd system will instantaneously grade the test and return the test score to the student. If the student did not pass the final examination, the student may retake the examination after 48 hours from the prior failed attempt at the exam. During the 48-hour period, the student should review the text material relating to the missed test questions.
Student Material/Equipment Required
The OnlineEd course is presented via the internet. To access the course, students will need a computer with an internet connection and a web browser. All major operating systems and web browsers are supported, including Windows, MacOS, Linux, and BSD/Unix operating systems; Internet Explorer, Firefox/Mozilla, Opera, and Safari web browsers.
All of the course material may be read online. However, it is recommended that the student print the course material and put the material in binder notebooks. This will allow for use of the course material for future reference material and in many cases, will make review of the material prior to taking the state examination much easier. Course textbooks are available for purchase.

All test scores are reported to the student's instructor for possible follow-up.
OnlineEd File Cabinet
The OnlineEd file cabinet contains resource information including Nevada Revised Statutes, Nevada Annotated Code, sample forms and documents, a glossary of terms, and support reference material.
Throughout the course, the student will be referred to the file cabinet for support materials. These support materials will give the student an opportunity to amplify the material presented in the course.
Completion and Assignment Timelines
This Nevada Pre-License Course may be completed by the student at the student's own pace. The course is designed to take 90 hours to complete. The time will be spent on reading the course text materials, studying the text materials to ensure concept understanding, completion of the course quizzes, review of support materials, and successful passage of the course final examination. All exercise quizzes and the final exams must be passed with a minimum score of 75%. There is no required progress with respect to proceeding with the course materials that is required of any student. Each student is solely responsible for their course progress, if any.
